This achillea is a somewhat spreading perennial with rich green feathery foliage and soft white, flat, flower heads with a bitter taste. The flowers have a tiny yellow eye of each individual flower and the small flowers are tightly packed together. The plant has a fragrance which is sweet and strong and could be said to be similar to chrysanthemums. They make good companion plants.

Apparently Starlings like to line their nests with Yarrow, it is said to stop the growth of parasites.

The flowers are well suited for cutting and the foliage is curiously aromatic when crushed.

Part of the daisy family. Other hybrid varieties are available (not from us) but they don't have the same medicinal uses.

Commonly found in Europe and Asia, but originated in America and Canada.

It is thought that wild yarrow was used to stop the bleeding of soldiers in the battle of Troy and got its name from Achillies, the hero of the Trojan Wars in Greek mythology.

Other names include gordaldo, nosebleed plant, old man's pepper, devil's nettle, sanguinary, milfoil, soldier's woundwort, thousand leaf, thousand seal.
