Where the Wild Things Grow

Take a walk out to a Kansas pasture (or a pasture near you) and you’d be amazed what grows there! Just the other day I was reading an article on Hay and Forage Minutes about hemlock. I took a stroll out to the pasture and from a distance I saw white flowers and thought, “OH NO, HEMLOCK!’

Upon further inspection, it’s not hemcock at all! In fact, this is a fabulous plant to have growing wild and fortunately for us, we have LOTS of it! It’s yarrow.

Don’t know much about yarrow?
