Common Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) Herb in 1L Pot

Native to Europe and Britain, Achillea millefolium is a hardy perennial that will flourish in any soil condition, but prefers light well-drained soil and a sunny position. As a result, Yarrow grows everywhere, in the grass, in meadows, pastures, and by the roadside.

As it creeps greatly by its roots and multiplies by seeds it can become invasive in the garden it would be better grown in a pot or restrict the roots by surrounding with tiles pushed into the soil. Being a native plant it is attractive to bees and butterflies great for a naturalistic planting scheme. Reaching heights of 30cm, Yarrow flowers from June to September, producing white or pale lilac daisy-like flowers, and the whole plant is covered in white, silky hairs.

Herb Usage

A traditional anti-inflammatory herb, the leaves and flowering stems are used to treat wounds and nosebleeds. indeed its generic name honours Achilles whose soilders are said to have used the herb in treating their wounds.
