Perennial zones 3-10. The Pearl is a relative of common yarrow and was popular during the Victorian era. From pollinator attractor to medicinal plant and cut flower, this highly ornamental herb plays many roles. Plants reach 2-3 feet tall and produce gobs of cheerful white pompoms, which are alluring to many small pollinators. The Latin name Achillea is a reference to the healing properties of the plant, as it is said that the soldiers commanded by Greek mythological warrior Achilles used yarrow to treat their wounds. Also a versatile cut flower, it can be used fresh or dried as an everlasting.
