This is the entry for sweet yarrow from Maplet's A Greene Forest.

Of Ageraton or good old Herb.

Ageraton hath one and the selfe same name both with the Greekes and Latines, and is a small shrub, verie full of yong shoutes and slips. It is like Origan or Marigolde, & hath his flower alike coloures as saith Diascorides. It may be thought that hath that name, for that it preserveth a great time without losse of his vertue, or not otherwise being hindered by sicknesse and age.
