Is it a sort of tagetes?

Hi Judith! I went back to the shop where I bought the plant - evidently it's a rudbeckia. Will investigate further as to variety...

I think it is Coreopsis, variety "Roi René". I wouldn't want to pit myself against your garden expert, but I have grown these before chez moi. All the Rudbeckias I've ever planted have grown to be six feet tall, not what you'd want on a balcony. And they are also much smaller than Gazanias.

Thank you Joan! I've googled photos of Coreopsis and that's definitely my plant! I agree with you about Rudbeckias being tall - used to live near a garden full of them and they grew higher than the fence. Thank you for your help :o)
