Inula mag­nifica

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

Flow­ers are the least of its charms, with mus­cu­lar ar­chi­tec­ture and huge leaves adding heavy­weight swag­ger to the sum­mer bor­der. This is a tough plant for a rich, moist soil. You could use it in a meadow or as here – pic­tured in the high gar­den at Great Dix­ter in the UK – min­gling with equally lofty plants such as drifts of sum­mer-scented phlox and vast can­de­labras of ver­bas­cums.
