Daisy type combination for sunny bed

I love Rudbekia Deamii and Echinacea which flower late summer, what similar daisy type flowers coukd I grow in the same bed to have some earlier flowers so I have continued flowering time. I grow calendula for it annually too and have just planted some white Japanese anenomes at the back of bed as it is shady.Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    If the soil is free draining, Anthemis Tinctoria 'E C Buxton' and Coreopsis Verticillata 'Moonbeam' make nice mid summer clumps. Shasta Daisy, Leucanthemum x Superbum should do fine in decent soil.

    Daisy type flowers generally like plenty of sun, but Asters are more tolerant, and late flowering, so would combine well with your other two.

    Sorry I misread you post - I thought you said "shade". You can still grow Asters but with the sun the choice is much wider. Personally I like Argyanthemums ( a type of Chrysanth). Single Dahlias ie . Bishop of Llandaff ( not the poshy types) are also good.
  • Thanks for al, the suggestions,I have some asters so coukd divide some in the spring.

    I know you specified daisies, but since you mentioned planting Japanese Anemones I wondered if you had considered planting some of the Spring or Late spring/Early summer flowering Anemones as well? 

    E.g

    Anemone blanda & Anemone coronaria 
  • No I hadn’t,good idea.
