Plant Portraits – Nettle and Yarrow


Stinging Nettle – Utica dioica
Nettle is rocking the PNW right now. I’ve learned to take my time with it, to be patient.


Yarrow – Achillea millefolium
“Achillea” as in Achilles – It was a brew of yarrow into which Achilles was dipped by his heal. Let’s all promise if we’re faced with a similar situation, we’ll submerge each other completely.
I’m still learning about Yarrow. It’s my plant ally for the year, so I’m sure I’ll have much more to share.

    Stinging nettle above ground parts are used along with large amounts of fluids in so-called “irrigation therapy” for urinary tract infections (UTI), urinary tract inflammation, and kidney stones (nephrolithiasis). The above-ground parts are also used for allergies, hayfever, and osteoarthritis.`””`
