    Hi Mike – they are an amazing array of brightness … we call them Rudbeckia – even though I see they’re not found in the UK – despite Linnaeus naming them. But we have similar types under the Aster bracket ..

    Cheers .. and they are what I need today … foul and very wet … so they’re yellowness brings in the sun .. Hilary

      I’m not sure why, but they haven’t seemed to bloom so well in recent years. We did have a pretty bad drought a few years back, but I would have thought they would have recovered.

      It’s been cold lately, but we’re going it a few days of spring-like temperatures and clear skies.
