Agrimony was introduced to the Americas from Europe, where it has had a long history of use dating back to the Romans and ancient Greeks. These cultures, and other Mediteranean peoples, prized Agrimony for an array of medicinal uses, including wound healing, asthma and as a sedative. During the Middle Ages, this unique herb was revered for its supposed magical qualities, and later on preeminent English herbalist Nicolas Culpepper also touted the healing virtues of Agrimony. After introduction to North America, Agrimony gained a reputation for alleviating symptoms of fever with native peoples.

Growing Guide
At full maturity, Agrimony will grow to 20” or more with the leafy base sending up spikes of small, richly-scented yellow flowers from mid summer onwards.


The seed can be tricky to germinate, but once established the plant is tenacious.


Agrimony prefers full sun to part shade and well-drained soil. Water moderately.


For best results, stratify seeds for 4-8 weeks by mixing seeds with small amount of moistened vermiculite in a small plastic bag and placing into refrigerator. Check regularly, adding water if needed to maintain moisture. If seeds begin to germinate, transplant immediately.

After this, seeds can be sown in flats or small containers. Cover seeds with a thin layer of soil, approximately 1/4" or twice the thickness of the seed. Keep moist until seeds begin to germinate, and gradually introduce starts to outdoor conditions by placing outside during days and finally overnight once spring temperatures begin to increase in late spring. Transplant outdoors once seedlings have reached a height of approximately 4".
