Yarrow is a perennial broadleaf weed that is commonly found across Canada and the US. Yarrow tends to form a very dense mat-like cover over the ground. Its leaves are very fine, feather like that look very similar to fern leaves. The leaves of yarrow are strongly scented and have a distinct odor. Yarrow usually grows in patches and spreads aggressively from its well developed rhizomes. Yarrow forms white flower heads in flat clusters at the end of a stem measuring to a height of 3 feet.
Yarrow typically isn’t a problem in dense established turf but if problems persist, selective post emergent weed control products are effective.
