Big, long-lasting, persistent dark orange flowers. It's January and they are still blooming. I deadheaded this plant a lot in the summer and early autumn, but as you can see have neglected to do any deadheading for a few months now because - well. I thought it would be done flowering!

I used to know what this was but didn't write it down and now can't figure it out from googling. Please help!

I'd like to give it its best chance at having a good summer, which might mean nipping this whole January-flowering malarkey in the bud?

Thanks in advance!

Amazing to still have so many flowers.
You must live in an extremely mild area.
Looks like Rudbeckia.

Thank you, Silver Surfer! Indeed it is Rudbeckia 'Summerina Orange'. I've now read that it will flower from early summer to first frost. I live in north county Dublin (Kinsealy) and we haven't had a first frost yet (and may not have one at all).

Do you have any advice on what I should do? Should I cut everything now or let it keep going?
