Rudbeckia "Marmalade" from seed

I was so captivated last year by the displays of late flowering Rudbeckia that I paid out the pennies for a packet of "Marmalade" seed and have been genuinely bowled over with the result. The mixture has a little diversity in its range of flowers, which I like, and has invigorated our front border for weeks at a time when other flowers are waning. One of these below is a named variety costing £8, the rest cost zilch. I challenge browsers to tell the difference. I'm hoping the plants will seed themselves and I'm keeping some seed back for Spring sowing as a precaution. Some plants do over-winter in a mild one. The plants were photographed this morning.
