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
