Eriophyllum confertiflorum * Golden Yarrow

Eriophyllum confertiflorum is a great plant for the dry garden due to the early and long lasting blooming season. This small herbaceous shrub starts blooming in the late winter and continues through most of the spring. Eriophyllum confertiflorum grows primarily on east facing slopes on well drained soils or in lightly shaded areas. I like it for its brilliant golden flowers as well as for the finely dissected gray foliage. Eriophyllum is recognizable enough that I can see it while buzzing down the highway and take a little joy at knowing what I saw. Eriophyllum confertiflorum is a great addition to the Butterfly Garden attracting the Painted Lady Butterfly.
