Inula helenium - Elecampane is a powerful herb as well as a very useful permaculture plant. The huge flat leaves are green on top and velvet underneath. A perennial which blossoms with a six foot spike of small, sunflower-like blossoms starting in it's second year. Roots are harvested beginning at the end of their second year. It's valuable in permaculture systems as a dynamic accumulator, drawing up nutrients from deep in the sub-soil and bringing them to the surface when the plants die back and decompose in Autumn.
