Wasatch Wildflowers Series - 2

Achilea millefolium, Yarrow. In the family Asteraceae. A classic herbal medicine source, the flowers are a splendid array.

Agastache urticifolia, Horse Mint. Mint Family (Labiateae). Strongly aromatic perennial. Some find the strong perfume disagreeable.  When I hiked the high elevations where this species was common, I would put a few blossoms in my pocket.   The pleasing odor is half the point.
