    Toni & Cheryl--I think your fern is Achillea millefolium.

    This is from Wikipedia: (Frank--Is it ok to copy a photo from Wikipedia & paste it here?) (I think I aswered my own question, the pasting function wouldn't work. ) Here is the link: http://hsb.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dataja:Ac ... 2_2574.jpg

    Cayuga... I do believe you are correct! Mine hasn't started to flower yet, but I've been keeping an eye on it. I'll post photos if/when that happens to make doubly sure it's the same.
    Sure is nice to know a plant's name. I've just been calling it "Aunt Rita's Fern"
    :-D
    Thanks!

    My neighbor loved it. She said here's never flowered until the end of summer and this one is loaded with buds already. So, I broke off a tip and started her one.

    This is a plant that was a passalong some 15-20 years ago. I have always thought it was some penstemmon until I thought to have folks here id it. It turns out to be Lychnis Viscaria (German catch fly)(thank you Toni& Netty). It is a great plant. I can't recommend it enough. [​IMG]
    As you can see this mystery plant is very pretty ( photo / image / picture from Cayuga Morning's Garden )
