Helianthus Lemon Queen

I think it lacks the brightness of the welsh poppy. A more subtle light yellow

Eryngium planum, yes the first is probably that, it looks right.. It's a perennial and will probably flower next year as long as it's in a good sunny well drained spot. It's not the biennial one we've been nattering on about, hi-jacking your thread

2 looks like E. bourgatii to me, that might flower next year or need another year.

Gigantea don't really have spiky leaves do they?

Yes Lyn, all my E gigantea have flowered (eventually) turned brown, dropped millions of seeds and died. Which is what I expected.

I've got 4 or 5 other species and there have been more in the past, all perennial. There are some spiky leaves out there

How about a photo? maybe it is a campanula. What species of eryngium is it supposed to be?

I have a lot of the biennial Eryngium giganteum, they are theoretically biennial but often are triennial (? a word) and are large plants by the time they get round to it.
