Species Description

Agrimony is a native perennial growing 30-80 cm in height and produces spikes of yellow flowers between June and August. It favours basic to neutral soils and is typically encountered on grassy hedgebanks, lightly grazed pastures, woodland edge and occasionally on brownfield sites. Emmet (1988) lists five species of associated micro-moth including the Brassy Pigmy Stigmella aeneofasciella and Rosy Tabby Endotricha flammealis.
