Description

Agrimonia eupatorium

Agrimony is a small perennial wildflower, usually growing in well drained spots. The delicate, star shaped, yellow flowers grow up elegant spikes in summer. Flowers develop into hooked burrs for seed dispersal. Chaffinch feed on them in the autumn and they are well visited by nectar feeding insects.

Historically, the plant was not only used against snake-bite but to calm digestive upsets and to help with catarrh.

Sow spring or late summer, some time (4-6weeks) in damp sand in the fridge may help germination (prechill)
