Could you please identify this beauty which “appeared” in my garden some years ago. Evergreen “hairy” green leaves and dandelion like small orange flowers?

This is Pilosella aurantiaca, known as ‘fox-and-cubs’. It is a wild flower of short grassland and came in to your garden by seed probably. It is persistant and spreads to make a clump by means of runners, which can be lifted if you want to spread it around.
