8614 Achillea L.
- L., Sp. Pl.: 896 (1753).
- Ptarmica Mill., Gard. Dict. Abr., ed. 4: 3 (1754).
- Excluded: Achillea alpina subsp. sibirica (A. sibirica).
Notes: Elven and Korobkov: We have discussed the possible recognition of Ptarmica apart from Achillea. In a phylogenetic study (Guo et al. 2004), Ptarmica nested within Achillea. Ptarmica was also polyphyletic and its species must be divided on two sections. We keep Ptarmica inside Achillea.
A white bloom in Scotts Valley, CA. I think it might be some sort of yarrow.
