Native perennial plant typically found growing by the sides of footpaths and uncultivated fields and meadows, with characteristic hairy stems and bright white discoid inflorescences known as corymbs.
The genus name Achillea refers to its use by Achilles (according to a legend related by Pliny the Elder) to heal the wounds of his fellow soldiers, while the specific epithet Millefolium refers to the plant’s finely dissected leaves.
