Yellow perennials


I have been searching for a yellow flower perennial that stands at about 24-30 inches tall, preferably a spring or early summer bloomer, to fill a specific spot in our garden.
Unfortunately all found so far appear to be invasive.
Any suggestion ?


Thanks for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners.  You haven’t mentioned your growing conditions but there are yellow perennials that will grow in sun, partial shade and shade.

Good luck with your search.
