Yarrow is a pollinator-friendly, easy-to-grow perennial that lights up the garden. Butterflies love yarrow, while deer and rabbits tend to avoid this plant. The lovely, flat-topped flowers make perfect additions to summer bouquets.
As a companion plant Yarrow is extremely good at attracting bees and all sorts of beneficial insects, and this plant is also good at repelling undesirable insects. The foliage is also very good at helping to break down compost so a few handfuls now and then in the compost bin is beneficial.
Yarrows are reputed to be general fortifiers, helping the body's natural resistance. They improve digestion, circulation and the function of the liver, gall, bladder and kidneys. They are also valuable wound treatments for cuts and grazes and are used in many cosmetic lotions for cleansing the skin.
