This is considered quite a dainty Inula growing only up to 70cm or so.
Most of its kin are giants so this one is more suited to smaller areas.
That said it is a bit of a spreader forming a wide colony via a creeping underground rootstock so site with some forethought.
It's a tough, undemanding perennial with leafy stems topped with very attractive woolly buds which open to yellow, fine-rayed daisies in late summer.
It will spread less quickly and flower at a lower height in poor dry soils.
An often overlooked and underrated plant that is adored by butterflies.
