Yarrow has a history dating back as far as the battle of Troy, where it was used to treat injured soldiers and adopted the common name of 'soldier's woundwort'. The ancient Greeks gave yarrow the name "achillea" after Achilles, the legendary heroic warrior.
This perennial herb grows about 3 feet tall and can be found in Europe, west Asia and North America. The white flowers usually form flat, daisy-like clusters up to a foot across and may be found in pastures, meadows and alongside roadsides, flowering from summer to autumn.
