    Yes, Doronicum (Leopard's Bane.)  Mine have a few '2nd flush' flowers right now, too.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks both of you, best place to put it in the garden? Sunshine or shade?

    Either. If you leave it alone it will self seed all over the place too!

    Dappled shade best, but as long as you don't let them dry out (which they hate) then they will grow in full sun.  They like a rich soil with plenty of organic matter so worth adding well-rotted manure or garden compost to the area.  They self-seed nicely. :)

    Thanks do much for the ID and the advice, I have a daisy type area in one of the beds I reckon it will go there nicely
