Inula 'Racemosa'

Inula 'Racemosa' (Inula)

Looks like we have at least an 8 footer!!! this year :-)
The bees love this plant then in the autumn/winter when the seadheads develop its like a giant bird feeder loved by the goldfinches :-), ironically this one self sowed itself here and is doing better than the others in the garden which aren't quite as big.

Wow Kathy, so many flowers too. I have lots now from your seed and one batch is set against a white stemmed betula and they are out doing the tree, lol. I hope the gold finches find mine in the autumn.

It does Wylie I can see it from the kitchen window, it looks even better from the upstairs window looking down :-)
I know what you mean Dawn I have another self sown one growing through a plum tree the flowers sticking out the top lol, yes hope you get the goldfinches they're quite a sight all on their own seedhead :-)
It is Stroller only problem with this its seeded itself right beside a path and the leaves are so huge I have to keep cutting a few off so I can actually walk down it :-)

Thanks Annella Rob(OH) designed those when we built the house and a friend made them :-), he's just finished repainting them, I did them first time round 13 years ago but you wouldn't get me up a ladder now :-)
Thanks Carole :-)
