I have always loved Yarrow. It is an easy plant to grow, and adds so many benefits to the different gardens. They require little attention, are almost impervious to pests, and disease, are very beneficial to the gardens for their nutrient accumulating abilities, and their medicinal value as well. And they attract all sorts of bees and butterflies.
In antiquity, yarrow was known as an herb used at military battle fields, due to its use in stanching the flow of bloody wounds. Other common names for yarrow millefolium, include the nosebleed plant, old man’s pepper, devil’s nettle, sanguinary, milfoil. Millefolium means thousand-leaved in reference to the foliage and achillea is in reference to Achilles, the hero of the Trojan Wars in Greek mythology who used this plant to treat wounds.
The ancient oracle of the I Ching is traditionally cast with Yarrow stalks which are thought to represent the Yin and Yang forces of the Universe in perfect balance. Yarrow is considered a harmonizing and balancing plant and can be used to treat emotional disturbances.
When growing yarrow, make sure you are using the right species. The other Yarrows are, the English Mace - argeratum, the Sneezeweed,White Tanzy - ptarmica, and the Siberian - sibirica. This ‘millefolium’ is the only one with the properties, and tasks mentioned here.
