Achillea millefolium, commonly known as yarrow, is a common and beneficial perennial wildflower with a clumping, upright habit up to three feet tall. Yarrow is also known for its large, clustered flower heads which bloom from the spring into the early fall. Yarrow flowers are typically white, though cultivar colors may differ, and are highly attractive to pollinators, butterflies, and native bees, and the foliage has a pleasant, herbal smell when rubbed or crushed. The 'Little Moonshine' cultivar is noted for its beautiful sunny yellow flowers and its relatively compact height of only 9-12".

Regarded as a very hardy species, Achillea millefolium is resistant to deer browsing and is also tolerant of drought, heat, and salt exposure. Yarrow grows best in average soils with good drainage, but especially those with fertile organic matter. Commonly used in naturalized meadows and lawns thanks to its small stature, Achillea millefolium 'Little Moonshine' also grows excellently in pollinator and rock gardens and in raised beds, containers, and other small spaces.
