A magnet for bees and butterflies. Shorter than most Inula, it's perfect for smaller gardens. Golden-yellow daisy flowers from July to September. Forms a good clump.
Showy Inula is found in the Himalayas, from Pakistan to C. Nepal and W. Asia, at altitudes of 2000-3300m.
Leave the seedheads on to give the birds a treat in winter.
Common name(s): Showy inula
