Yarrow Wild Flower
Yarrow is a Native Irish wildflower perennial of pastures, roadsides and wasteland areas throughout Ireland. It produces beautiful tiny white flowers from June right through to November and grows to 50cm in height.
Yarrow is a very useful companion plant as it is very good at repelling many insects regarded as pests whilst attracting beneficial insects for pollination purposes. Birds such as starlings like to line their nests with yarrow to inhibit parasites.
In the first year of growth, Yarrow will produce a strong taproot system which will allow other surrounding plants to tap into for water supply, making Yarrow a superb companion plant.
Native Irish Butterflies such as the Meadow Brown, Large Skipper, Marbled White, Peacock, Small Copper, Small Heath and Wall varieties love to feast on Yarrow nectar, as do hoverflies which makes it a super addition to our Throw and Grow Native Irish Seed Bombs.
