Achillea Millefolium, a.k.a. Yarrow

I’m not sure whether this is the native variety of yarrow or not. It was originally growing in our lawn as a weed. I don’t find this perennial to be a spectacular flower for the flower bed, but it thrives in the bright and dry conditions, and has bloomed continuously this summer, even after a bunny munched off the first round of flower buds.

I was surprised to see this same plant growing all over Bend, Oregon.
