Possibly one of the most common wildflowers in the Northern Hemisphere, the aptly named common yarrow is found in all of North America (excluding some Caribbean islands), and much of Europe and Asia. It has been used for centuries and perhaps millennia as an herbal medicine for stopping blood flow from wounds and nosebleeds. It is found from low to high elevations, and from very wet to very dry locations throughout its range, making it perfectly adapted for life from the Arctic to all but the hottest and driest of deserts.
