    This lovely umbellifer has appeared in the lane. I can’t find out what it is. Any help appreciated, thanks :-) Jane

    I’ve always known it as Yarrow Achillea millefolium, used to pick the new leaves in spring as a tonic for our guinea pigs

    Excellent, Jenny, thank you! It seems it can be white or pink. It’s very elegant to look at. I’ll save some seeds to sprinkle around the garden where the cow parsley takes over.

    Take care, the wild version of Achillea can be a bit of a thug. Spreads by runners and seed, often reverting to the rather dirty white of the original.
    There are lots of cultivars of many different colours available now.Reds, yellows, oranges, pinks, even terracotta.

    agree about it being a thug, had it growing on the rockery in our previous garden, lovely flowers to ut with sweet peas and lady’s mantle but boy did it spread
