Description :

A gigantic sunflower!


  • 180 cm in height (about 6 foot tall),
  • dark green oval leaves nearly 80 cm long,
  • yellow, 15 cm diameter flowers
  • one plant occupies one square metre.

Inula magnifica has surprised more than one gardener, who buys a container at a plant sale and later gazes in wonder at the elephantine sunflower sitting in the flower bed!

Native to the eastern Caucasus, this sturdy plant has both generous foliage and impressive flowering, as long as it is grown in optimal conditions: good, fertile, damp garden soil (*), moisture and shelter from strong winds.

Sun and summer drought will reduce it to an oversized wilting lettuce. A high wind will tear its leaves into strips.

In the garden, we plant it as a focus plant on its own on the bank of a stream or a pond or at the back of a mixed border with other long-stemmed summer varieties: Vernonia, Helianthus, Thalictrum, Veronicastrum.

Goes very well with Ligularia przewalskii.

For meadows and natural gardens.

Maintenance: prune severely in late autumn, apply organic mulch with a generous input of compost at the end of the winter. It produces a lot of nectar, so is very pollinator-friendly.

(*) Can cope with heavy, damp, clay soils as long as drainage elements are included during planting.
