In Vinoland the yarrow is not growing near the vines, but is instead flourishing on a slope above the house. In fact, most of the interesting wildflowers in Vinoland grow together on the same slope (currently covered in hop clover, rose clover and wild hyacinth). Yarrow has a large taproot which could really benefit the poor soil in some parts of the vineyard. If only I could coax this winsome plant to move downhill.
