Elecampane, Magnificent (Inula magnifica), packet of 50 seeds, organic
Family: Aster (Asteraceae)
Hardy to Zones 5 to 8
(Magnificent Elecampane) Herbaceous perennial. Native to Europe. Giant, coarse, aromatic leaves and multiple upright stems bearing flowers colored yellow with dark centers, up to 6 inches across. The roots of “Magnificent” taste similar to what we call “Official” (that is Inula helenium), but “Magnificent” is less root productive and not traditionally used. We’ve noticed the plants prefer partial shade and moist soils. Light-dependent germinator. Sow in early spring by pressing into surface of soil and keeping evenly moist and in the light. Space plants 2 or 3 feet apart.
