Achillea ptarmica 'The Pearl'


Achillea ptarmica 'The Pearl' (Achillea ptarmica (Sneezewort))

This tends to spread around, and can be a bit of a nuisance. I dig some out occasionally to keep it under control.

I like the one Louise has got - I'll have to find out where she got it! It is a pretty plant, if only it would stay where it's supposed to. lol.

I must ask Louise if her lovely version 'walks' as well. Not sure how long she's had it, though.

May I suggest that you post this question (with a photo if possible) on the question page? I'm sure someone will be able to help. I haven't seen this with my Achilleas, so I can't give you an answer. Sorry.
