Common yarrow Interesting Notes

Seduction varieties offer consistent shape and size for easy cropping, logical grouping, and natural "sell-along" retail positioning. Excellent summer pot crop for outdoor production.

'Strawberry Seduction' has big heads of rich velvety red flowers with bright gold centers. Columnar habit is remarkably dense, full and sturdy. Taller and more rigidly upright than Tutti Frutti varieties. Excellent flowering uniformity. Long blooming period, mid-June through July. - Blooms of Bressingham

"This species was cultivated in Europe before 1440, used as a remedy for toothache, and mixed in ale in place of hops to increase the inebriating quality of the drink. It was thought to have a magical quality similar to our "apple a day keeps the doctor away," and was said to grow in churchyards as a reproach to the dead, "who need never have come there if they had taken their yarrow broth faithfully every day while living." The main use, however, was that of an herb to heal wounds. The genus was named after Achilles, who is said to have used A. millefollium to staunch the wounds of his soldiers. Soldier's Woundweed and Carpenter's Weed are other old English names." - Allan Armitage
