Review:

I put this out in my garden last year. It grew beautiful feathery foliage, but no flowers (as expected from a perennial). I didn't bother to cut it back when winter rolled around. It stayed green even when covered in snow. This spring it shot up over 3 feet tall with beautiful white flowers. The best part? It has been a home to so many predatory bugs! I've seen ladybugs, a praying mantis, and lacewings. It even gave a home to parasitic wasps that took care of my aphid problem for me. Not to mention the bees love it! If you're looking to attract beneficial insects to your garden, plant Yarrow.
