Fleabane has daisy-like flowers, which are either single or semi-double with a conspicuous yellow centre. The common name Fleabane is also used to refer to plants in the genus Inula.
There are over 200 species, which grow in a range of habitats, including meadows, prairies, woodland and rocky screes and are mostly native to North America.
All varieties prefer a sunny spot and a fairly fertile, well-drained soil. Some smaller species dislike winter wet, and some will tolerate very dry areas once established.
