Meet Achillea millefolium, one of the few keepers. It's known by many common names, such as Milfoil (from its Latin name, meaning thousand leaf) and Yarrow.
Wikipedia description, there are both native and introduced genotypes of this plant in North America. This plant did not have any papers with it, so your guess is as good as mine as to its heritage.
Things I Didn't KnowIn the Middle Ages, yarrow was part of a herbal mixture known as gruit used in the flavoring of beer prior to the use of hops. The flowers and leaves are used in making some liquors and bitters
This herb is also identified as one of the plants in a Neanderthal burial site in northern Iraq.
