Eastern Caucasus. Clump-forming Inula magnifica is a powerful presence in the summer garden. Sturdy, six-foot bloom spikes rise from a mound of dark green foliage. Individual leaves measure up to ten-inches long. They are softly hairy on their undersides. The flowers appear in corymbs of from 8 to 20 blooms and are especially large, measuring up to six inches wide. Sometimes we find dark purple streaking rising up the flowering stems. This is indeed a "magnificent" perennial to anchor the back of a perennial border.

Late summer.  6 ft. x 3 ft.
