27. Yarrow
(Achillea millefolium L.)

27. Yarrow

The yarrow or milfoil is a familiar plant of pastures an roadsides all over the country. Its lower leaves are long and narrow and divided into slender feathery segments. The flowering stem, about a foot to eighteen inches tall, carries a few similar but shorter leaves, and a dense corymb of flower-heads. These are of the composite type, with yellowish disk and white - or occasionally pink - ray florets. They appear from June onwards.
