The Yarrow flower is known by many names, from common yarrow to old man’s pepper. Yarrow is a hardy, herbaceous perennial with tiny, fern-like leaves spiralling up multiple stems topped by flattened flower clusters. While the “common” Yarrow flower is white, hybrids offer colour choices ranging from sulphur-yellow to burgundy. Yarrow flowers are often thought to represent both healing and inspiration. Many people give these blossoms as gifts to symbolize their concern for the recipient’s well-being, or to help them find joy and illumination in their lives.
