Description

Nobody seems to bother with these common roadside species, but I think they're lovely. Anyway, somebody's got to submit them to the Field Guide group!

The bright green leaves in the background are ferns, but the dark green feathery one at the top right is the yarrow.

I think this is actually native to eastern North America, is it not? It just seems introduced because it is a ruderal and likes disturbance..

Thanks for your note. Hmm, looks like a complicated question. Newcomb's just lists it as introduced. PLANTS, however, lists several subspecies, some native but the nominate not -- and those divisions are themselves not recognized by all authorities. I assume it's not possible to tell which this is (don't think I have macros of the stem, leaves etc, even if that would help). Maybe I should remove it from Introduced Species project ...
