Inula racemosa - aka: Indian Elecampane. This perennial herb is a more showy relative of Elecampane. The plants reach a height of 4-6’ with dense branches of sunny yellow flowers. Native to the Himalayas, the roots have a long history of medicinal use in Ayurvedic systems. Similar expectorant properties as their cousin Elecampane from what I can tell. 40+ seeds
