Yarrow, Achillea millefolium, thrives in soils that are affected by long periods of drought or are lacking in nutrients. The plant spreads by underground stems and also by seeds from its flowers (June to October), which provide an excellent source of nectar for bees. However, once it is established in your garden it will quickly spread, causing particular problems when it appears in the lawn.
Plant spreads by underground stems and seeds and produces large drought-resistant patches in lawns, so grass cannot spread.
