There are about 35 species of these deciduous rhizomatous or tuberous plants, from wooded areas throughout Europe and Asia.
These delightful cheery big yellow daisy flowers in spring brighten up any woodland clearing. This is their natural growing condition but as with all perennials they can be grown outside of this, into a sunnier position.
Easy to lift and split. Do prefer a humus rich soil where possible. They are a spreading clump forming plant that is useful in any garden border.
