Looks like a member of the Asteraceae family.

Both correct,
Doronicum grandiflorum is a species of Doronicum, a member of the aster family.

D. grandiflorum is a perennial herb growing 10-40 cm. (4-16 in.) tall and bearing numerous yellow flower heads borne singly on hairy stalks. The large, ovate (egg-shaped) ground-leaves have toothed edges and are supported by long, narrow petioles. The flower stems also bear leaves spaced alternately along the lower half of the stem. These hug the stem and are ovate to lanceolate in shape. The leaves are heavily densely beset with both glandular and non-glandular hairs. The flower heads are 4-6 cm. (1.5-2.5 in.) wide and have both yellow ray and disc flowers. Flowers appear from July through August.
Many thanks! I want a couple of plants...they last almost all summer regardless of what Wiki says..
