<< Just to throw some confusion into the fray, Achillea lanulosa is a native

 Swink & Wilhelm say in their "Plants of the Chicago Region" that the only 
 way to tell the two apart is through chromosomal counts.
 So...  Maybe you're growing a native after all.  :) >>


I saw that when I checked the A. millefolium and thought I better not be too 
esoteric on Achillea and had not the faintest idea who would know about A. 
lanulosa.  So here is a knower of the two.   The question would now be, have 
you seen the true native and is it worth a search.  It seems to be described 
as a western native.

Achillea in this white unimproved form is a very strong grower and useful in 
many areas of the garden.  If you have dry poor soil area, it will do fine 
and stay in place for years.  It was the change in form and size that 
originally interested me.
