Yellow flower ID


Please could anyone ID this - tall, perennial, looks a bit like a Rudbeckia although no black spot!

Many thanksimageimage


  • Perhaps a helianthus cultivar?

    Probably not Lemon Queen though - the flowers are a brighter colour than LQ.

    very pretty ?

  • I agree, one of the perennial Helianthus but not 'Lemon Queen'. I like these a lot but they can spread quite vigorously by rhizomes.

  • They do spread vigorously - my small clump was well-behaved for two tears and then wham there were yellow flowers everywhere!  I now dig up lots of new rhizomes every June to keep the clump in the space I have. I also plant them up into pots and take them to the village fete for sale. They are always popular. 

  • OK - many thanks all, that's great to know it's a Helianthus!
