Achillea – Yarrow

A member of the Compositea family, the Yarrow is a perennial that grows between 1 to 3 feet tall throughout the summer.  Considered to be an ancient and long lasting plant, the Yarrow is reported to have between sixty to 100 variants that prefer full sun exposure, and varying soil compositions from acidic to clay.  Highly drought tolerant, the Yarrow tends to be white, yellow or red.  Susceptible to Aphids, powdery mildew, and stem rot, the Yarrow was named by Linnaeus, the father of botanical nomenclature, in honor of Achilles, the Greek hero of the Trojan War in Homer’s Iliad, who used yarrow to treat his soldiers’ war wounds.
