Yarrow (Achillea)

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a native perennial that should be a staple in any garden for their beauty, ease of growth and long life.  They displays light, delicate fern like foliage with long blooming flat-topped flower clusters.  Flower clusters are comprised of tiny florets which rise above the foliage in full color during June through September.The genus was named after the Greek mythological character Achilles. According to legend, Achilles’ soldiers used yarrow to treat their wounds,  hence some of its common names such as allheal and bloodwort. (Wikipedia)

Yarrow will withstand dry conditions and like full sun.  Cut to the ground in Autumn and divide established plants in early spring or fall.  Pick the blossoms often to extend the flowering period.  Flowers from the Yarrow plant are excellent for cutting as the flower heads can be dried for winter decoration.  Pick long stems, strip the foliage and hang in bunches to dry.

Yarrow has been recognized as a medicinal herb for many centuries.
