Buy Inula helenium elencampe: Adds height and colour all summer

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 it 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.

Eventual height & spread

This plant is sold in a 9 cm pot. As it is now September, is it too late in the year for this plant to establish in the ground before winter, or should it be (a) kept in the same pot until the spring or (b) transferred into a larger pot until the spring. Thank you.

Zosia

This plant is fully hardy, so now is a great time to plant. The soil is still relatively warm, so the roots will continue to grow for the next few months, and then in the spring, it will be better established and put on more top growth as a result.

Will this plant do well planted among David Austin shrub roses? Or will it overpower the roses?

Marc

Hello there This is a lovely plant but it is fast growing, tall and vigorous - I think it will overpower your roses.

How attractive is this plant to slugs?

Diana

Hello there I haven't heard that this plant is a favourite of slugs, but I would give it some protection as a young plant with fresh foliage if possible.

Is the plant shown with this PERSICARIA Firetail?
