Achillea (Yarrow)

Achillea millefolium, commonly known as yarrow flower or achillea flower, is a popular choice for bouquets and arrangement fillers. The showy flower heads with their many tiny, tightly packed blossoms add punch to any floral display. Yarrow flowers have a strong, sweet scent, and a beautiful feathery leaf shape and texture. An added bonus--these flowers can be dried and enjoyed for many months! Dried achillea is stunning on a door wreath as the flowers retain their color beautifully. Yarrow flowers are available in a host of colors, including creamy or clear white, carmine, pink and lilac.

The name achillea derives from Greek mythology, as the Spartan hero Achilles reputedly used yarrow to cure his soldiers’ wounds. Millefolium means thousand leaves, referring to the many leaflets on the stem.
