Achillea possibly wilsonii.

yes I have thought it a Achillea, but never found an image of one with as big a leaf or as tall. The Wilsonii seems to relate to Aconitum, which it isn't. thank you for your thoughts

Have a look at the Cotswold Garden Flowers website, I got my plant like this from them.

My mum has a big clump of this. It's Achillea millefolium var.gigantea. It's belongs to a species complex ranging from small dwarf plants to this giant though all closely related to each other.

I thought it was A. wilsoniana, but would not argue, the label went years ago. It does set seed all over the place too.

on looking at the achillea millefolium gigantea, my leaves are much bigger and lush green
