New Garden - Plant ID Please

Can someone please help me ID this spring flowering plant.

For some season these images have been turned sideways on.... no idea why! Sorry.

    Hi @Cottage Compost,

    Looks like a doronicum to me.
    Could be Little Leo as yours doesn't look very tall ...

    Looks like Doronicum orientale - leopard's bane - a member of the asteraceae family

     It might not be too. Mine aren't very tall this year either, it's been too dry, they don't look anything like usual!

    Glad you asked about this plant. There are lots growing in the grass verges in the village, come up every year, and I thought I’d try and get some for the garden. Now I know what they are called!

    I have Little Leo, and it’s been in flower and still going strong since winter, it doesn’t get much sun but it’s been lovely to see it blooming away. 
    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
