I really don't know what this plant is, and I'm hoping you can help me. I got this on sale and it had no label, but it was in a section where they had perennials. It made nice neat mounds of leaves. Then this summer, it started with these fragrant yellow flowers. And now, they are even holding on in November (though they look a bit scraggly.)

Looks like primrose.
I found this link http://www.uni.edu/~andersow/fourpetals.html
Does that look like what you have?

I think this is what you have.

Thanks for the info. I really liked the link to the wildflowers, so I saved it - that is very useful.

I looked through the material, and I think it might be a yellow wallflower, based on looking at the stems and leaves. Unfortunately, it says its a biennial, so I don't know if I'll get it next year.
