Millefoglio di Clavena

Botanical name: Achillea clavennae

Achillea clavennae is an herbaceous perennial endemic to the Eastern Alps, where it grows spontaneous on the Rocky slopes and scree between 800 and 2600 meters. The epithet "clavennae" was given to this species of Achillea in honor of botanist bellunese Nicolò Clavena, which I dedicate to his studio in the 17th century.

It is a small plant, it reaches heights up to 15-25 cm, and strongly aromatic foliage similar to camphor.

The inflorescences are white head and make their appearance from June to September. It is interesting to observe that the flowers of Yarrow tend to attract very useful insects, such as ladybugs, which are the usual prey on insect pests of plants, such as aphids.

Achillea clavennae is used in liqueur to flavor schnapps or for packing.
