I have grown this flower for a few years but have never known the name of Iit. It has a yellow daisy like flower.

Thanks

Something in the chrysanthemum family I think. I'm sure someone else can get nearer than that

Something in the Anthemis family I think, I've grown Tinctoria which is very similar and also yellow, but not quite the same.

Could be a coreopsis.  If you are you're very lucky, the slugs destroyed mine before it had a chance to produce a decent shoot.  Enjoy.

Could it be Chrysanthemum segutum, which is a british native.

Sorry should be segetum
