Agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria)

Agrimonia eupatoria otherwise known as Agrimony or Aaron’s rod is a hardy perennial. It grows wild in hedgerows and woodland margins on sandy soil. In the garden it prefers a well drained position with partial or full sun. Agrimony may be propagated from seed or by division.
