Taxon Species
Description Yarrow is a perennial, herbaceous plant in the Daisy (Asteraceae) family that is native to the temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It is grown as a companion plant, an ornamental, and for medicinal use. The plant has one to several upright stems with feathery, varyingly hairy, dark-green foliage. It's flowers grow in umbels. The most common flower color is white, but cultivars can be yellow, orange, pink, purple, and red. Yarrow has a strong, sweet scent similar to chrysanthemums. It has a rhizomatic root system and can become invasive. Yarrow is an excellent companion plant because it repels pest insects while attracting beneficial insects like parasitic wasps, ladybirds, hoverflies, butterflies, damsel bugs, and lacewings. It can also be used to combat soil erosion because of it's deep roots and drought-tolerance. Yarrow was used by Native Americans as a sleep aid and to relieve pain, fever, and headaches. It is also used to heal wounds and treat colds.
