The genus Achillea was named after Achilles, who used plant extracts to treat soldiers’ wounds in the battle of Troy. The name milfoil comes from its Latin name “millefolium,” referring to its numerous leaves. It spreads by rhizomes and self-seeding and commonly grows in lawns but is also found in open fields, waste areas, gardens, and mountainous regions throughout North America from the coast to the alpine zone and Europe and Asia.
Common yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a hardy perennial bloom from April to the first frost. Its delicate, feathery-cut leaves make it look a bit fernlike. The plant produces dome-shaped clusters of white flowers from late spring to fall and can grow to about 3 feet in height.
The most common variety is Achillea millefolium (common yarrow). Still, roughly 30 varieties of yarrow have been identified as separate species by some botanists and as subspecies by others.
It is found in meadows, on the edge of woods and fields, along roadsides, and in waste areas. A member of the family Asteraceae, milfoil has a long history of herbal use and pharmaceutical applications, spanning more than two thousand years.
Since this bushy perennial thrives in dry, sunny conditions and tolerates poor, rocky soil, it is often used as a ground cover. Yarrow’s fernlike foliage can be mowed down once or twice a year to keep its height low if it’s growing in an area where it needs to be kept under control.
It makes a good companion plant for tomato plants because yarrow contains chemicals that help deter the Colorado potato beetle, black bean aphid, and cabbage maggots.
