Inula helenium


5 year guarantee
9cm pot £7.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, deep, moisture-retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Throughout the summer this magnificent perennial produces brown-eyed, yellow daisies on tall stems, which tower over the border. An impressive plant - not just for its stature, but also for its ease of growth and sunny disposition, it will quickly fill gaps towards the back of the border, provided it has deep fertile soil and a reliable source of water.

  • Garden care: Divide over-large clumps in spring or autumn. In more exposed positions, use brushwood or bamboo canes to provide support.
