As I have to do nearly all of my plant purchasing online, sometimes it difficult to get an idea of a plant in terms of appearance, growth habit, any problems with the plant etc....

Im looking at getting some Achillea ‘wonderful wampee’ - would anyone has any experience/knowledge/images of this plant so I can make a decision?

    No, I love achillea, but I don’t know this one. I’d not be attracted to it though, as it’s not very different from yarrow is it, which is pinky white. It’s probably shorter and better behaved.

    I don't know that one either but my experience has been that they are pretty trouble-free apart from a tendency to flop. They can be invasive. Mine are much chewed by slugs when young and need protection but I have Spanish slugs. I don't think our natives like the aromatic foliage so you may not have that problem.

    Ah we are far apart geographically Posy. I’d agree trouble free but taller ones flop. WW looks short though. Not invasive here except yarrow, and slugs not interested. Not Spanish though. 
    I have terracotta, cerise queen, paprika, and least favourite cloth of gold, too tall. 
  • Thanks. I considered this variety as I do like native Yarrow (which I have in the garden) but I liked the apparent mound shape of this one. I’ll probably just propagate my native yarrow instead and save some money!
