Range DescriptionAchillea crithmifolia is native to the Balkan Peninsula and the Carpathians. In Romania it is only found in the southern regions of the country (Badarau and Malos 2011). In Bulgaria it is widespread throughout the whole country and found at elevations up to 1500 metres asl (Assyov and Petrova 2006, Lipman 2009). This is an invasive species which has extended its naturalized range into western and central Europe (Greuter 2006-2009, CABI International 2012). It has been introduced into Sweden and into France, where the only confirmed occurrence is in a small area in the north east (INPN 2012). It has been reported in Austria, Czech Republic and Poland where it is found as a casual alien, but its precise distribution is unknown (Greuter 2006-2009). This species does not occur in Italy (Schede de botanica 2013). In Germany it is a locally naturalized neophyte; there is no information on localities (Bundesamt für Naturschutz 2012). In Switzerland there is only one record (Info Flora 2012).
