Help me name this pink plant

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday. Please visit her for to see lots of pink this week and meet some wonderful bloggers!

Last year I bought several perennials at the end of the season at Lowes off the clearance rack. The plant with the pale pink blooms in this picture is one of the ones I bought. I didn’t save the tag and am not sure what it is called. IMG_0777

So, can any of you garden experts name this plant?

Hope you have a great day and a very happy Mother’s Day!

Thanks for coming by,

Diane

Yes...it is indeed yarrow. It's a perennial herb of the aster family.

Have a beautiful (pink) Mother's Day.

This is yarrow. It is beautiful, when dried.

Happy Mothers Day!

Hi Diane
It sounds like you got the answer to this pretty perennial. I have seen it around. Isn't spring wonderful? I hope you aren't have too much rain...we've been having our share of grass watering this week.

I hope you have a lovely Mother's Day and weekend.

Deborah,

The flowers are lovely - I think I may need to seek out some yarrow to plant myself!

Have a very Happy Mother's Day!

Well, by now I see a dozen other people have named it, but let me add mine along with theirs... Yes, it's yarrow, and it comes in all different colors!

Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.

BTW, I'd name it Betty ☺☺☺

Brenda said...

It looks like the yarrow I grow in my garden called Oertel's Rose...I love it! It starts out pink and fades to white, as I recall...mine's not blooming, yet. Happy Pink Saturday! Susan

So pretty! I've never had pink yarrow...only yellow and white. Hmmmm....I might need to find me some.

Happy Mother's Day!
Hugs!
