This Year’s Herb of the Year is Yarrow

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) is a summer-blooming member of the aster family that produces multiple long-lasting blossoms in flat-topped clusters in a variety of colors. Popular with pollinators and herbalists, yarrow has been selected by the International Herb Association as the 2024 Herb of the Year! It’s found throughout the northern hemisphere, and easily identified by its feathery, fern-like leaves. Over millennia, people of many cultures have found hundreds of beneficial uses for yarrow for medicinal and digestive potions and even for dyeing fabrics!

Thanks to all the 2024 Vendors!

A big thank you to all the participating nurseries and sellers of all types for making Maymont’s Herbs Galore 2024 a resounding success! We’ll see you next year!!
