Yarrow / ATTRACTS: Orioles. Plant with Red Oak Tree which attracts Monarch Butterflies. (Tufted -Achillea Lewisii is the best). Great for attracting bugs which are important to nestlings in the Spring. Plant in roadside ditches. NEVER PLANT "A. MILLEFOLIUM" Will get out of control and take over your entire yard!!!!
