Plant Details

A glorious, robust, tall perennial which bears large pale green leaves, and very tall stems. Frilly, large yellow daisies are spaced all the way up the main stem, in summer and autumn, making it very noticeable indeed.

The stout stems need no staking in good soil in sun, at the back of a border or old cottage garden, where it is most attractive to bees and butterflies.

Leave the seed heads on to give the birds a treat in winter.

Probably the biggest Inula, this plant needs some space.

Height and spread: 2.2m x 1m

Common name: Giant 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.
