If it is yellow daisies you’re after, Rudbeckia won’t ever disappoint and they do not discriminate; growing well in every garden, even under very harsh conditions they will flourish.

After a few years of undisturbed growth it will form a big clump which you may want to divide in the autumn.

During the season you can fill up a vase with these lovely long stems to brighten up the inside of a room too.

One other task you can expect is to cut down to ground level once the stems had died back.

Their tough rhizomes will spend the entire winter under ground.

Despite its tolerance Rudbeckia still prefers  full sun and lots of water.
