Pink Yarrow

So many of my early flowers are done blooming,
but just about the time that happens my Pink
Yarrow bursts into full bloom. I just love this plant.
Patty, one of my best friends gave me a start of hers
3 or 4 years ago. I have divided it 3 times and I
have placed it in other areas of my garden for additional
color. I enjoy the plants I am given, because
every time I look at it I am reminded of that person.
My Mom warned me that Yarrow self seeds and takes over.
I have never had that problem with this variety, but the reason
could be because when it starts to go to seed I deadhead it.
I also find by doing this, it will bloom again before frost.
