Common Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) Herb in 1Litre 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. This is our native variety and can flower from June to September and it is drought-tolerant. Try it in a sunny spot towards the back of an herbaceous border, or among grasses, do stake it, as it tends to flop due to the weight of the flower head if it gets wet. It makes an excellent cut flower too.

 Being a native plant it is attractive to bees and butterflies great for a naturalistic planting scheme. Reaching heights of 60cm, Yarrow produces beautiful white tightly packed umbels of plate-like flowers held high on tall stems, and has ferny foliage beneath which is grey-green in colour which has a distinctive smell. As it creeps greatly by its roots and multiplies by seeds it can be controlled in the garden by either restricting the roots by surrounding with tiles pushed into the soil or pulling up unwanted suckers and self-seeders in Spring. 

Herb Usage

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