Inula helenium

Customers see this bold perennial when they drive up to our parking lot. Even out of bloom, the immense, rounded, medium green leaves are enough to draw attention for they can measure up to 32 inches in length. Because their edges curl inward, their woolly undersides are distinctly visible. The three-inch yellow rayed flowers appear on stout stems rising up to six feet in height. Inula helenium serves as a great anchor for a sunny, summer border.

Mid- to late summer.  3-6 ft. x 3 ft.
