Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #33.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is a somewhat confusing one, the “common yarrow”. Some books list this species as ‘alien’, which means it was introduced and is not native. Others consider it native. Seems it was native at one time but varieties were introduced which the native species hybridized with so that it is now hard to tell the difference. That’s why the change to ‘alien’. This wildflower, which I will consider native, is found throughout Canada and the US. There is another species, the Siberian yarrow, which we also have here in Canada and has been found in ND and MN as well. That is a native species found around the world in northern latitudes. The common yarrow can be found in sunny to part shade areas such as roadsides, fields, open clearings in forests, basically most anywhere. It is loved by bees and butterflies which I think makes it an important wildflower. It can also grow in very dry conditions, blooms from June to September and grows from 1 to 3 feet (30 to 90cm) tall. The individual flowers are only 1/4 inch (6mm) across forming a cluster up to 4 inches (10cm) across. Have a wonderful day and weekend. We will see you again next week and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • Colored water works on cut flowers, it will turn the petals the color of the water, though a bit lighter.πŸ˜„ They probably cross it with a closely related species that is a different color,πŸ€” just to get the color from it. It works.😁
