Inula helenium

Commonly called elecampane 'round these parts . . . just coming to bloom. From the moment this herb rooted on my little acre it identified itself as a sentry. I know we are in high summer when it starts blooming.

Hi Annie! I just checked out your blogs and I really like!! With both of my parents having stellar green thumbs, it seems to have skipped a generation so I think I will have to keep checking out your blogs!
