Best known for its ability to flower for many months during the summer - May to October. The yellow flowers look like daisies and the plant is a member of the gigantic Composite (Compositae now sometimes known as Asteraceae) family that all produce these flowers - either yellow or white.
Easy to grow in lots of light and reasonably well drained soil but best in mild coastal regions and heavily built up areas (London in particular) where less frost is experienced.
Propagated from cuttings.

Hardy anywhere in Britain below approximately 1000ft (300m)

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
