Plant ID

Hi guys,

Can anyone ID this plant please, grown from seed which was sold to me as Perovskia but I'm having my doubts.

    It isn't perovskia, looks like one of those ornamental carrot plants.

  • There does seem to be a spherical flowering head starting on them.

    I agree with Gardenmaiden. I'm sure it isn't Perovskia.

    it looks very much like something I've got in the garden.

    It has bright yellow daisy-like flowers, just coming out now.
    I did know what it was called once.... if it comes back to me i'll let you know
    Seeds itself about quite a lot, but easily pulled out where you don't want it
    I'm sure someone will be along soon with the answer

    Looks like Achillea to me. Is there a strong bitter smell from it?  It spreads underground like fury and can be hard to get rid of.  Also called Tansy;  I had a kitten called Tansy. The softest sweetest little thing you ever saw!

    Not a perovskia and not an achillea whose common name is yarrow.  I think you mean tanacetum Hester.

    Yes, it looks like Tansy to me too - Tanacetum vulgare.

     This looks like something I have in the garden  gifted to me by the birds !

    It's Tansy leaves have a strong smell , yellow button type flowers . Do the leaves smell at all ?

    Hester is right ,it's a sod to get rid of .

    Yes, I think I could be wrong that it is Achillea.  Right about the rest ,tho'. ?
