Notes:

Blooms in lower Michigan in late May-early June. Spreads easily and is perennial. Thrives in sandy soil and I believe it is wild in type. Dark green foliage is frilly and very attractive; somewhat fern-like.

    Not a yarrow. Foliage like a yarrow, flower just like a polygonella! Foliage is low and compact, then a shoot (or several) grow upwards of 1 1/2 feet with blossom head and blooms for about two weeks

    Flower looks the same, but foliage is completely different and bloom time is different. This beautiful plant has been a mystery to me for years. Thanks for the link

    I’m thinking polygonella… Sand jointweed. http://www.ct-botanical-society.org/galleries/polygonellaarti.html
