Plant Details

A wonderful plant and a magnet for bees and butterflies. Shorter than most Inula, it's perfect for smaller gardens. A profusion of shaggy bright, yellow daisy flowers from August to October.

From Sikkim, Burma and China and introduced by John Dalton Hooker in 1849.

Leave the seedheads on to give the birds a treat in winter.

Unlike some Inulas, hookeri is not a huge plant so is suitable for smaller gardens.

Height: 60cm

Common name(s): Hooker inula

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
