Inula hookeri


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
First introduced to cultivation by Joseph Hooker, one of the preeminent botanists of the 19th century and buddies with Charles Darwin. Our fern and rhododendron greenhouse is named for him. This is a strong growing, fine-petaled yellow daisy whose flowers emerge from fuzzy buds so intricate they might befit some beautiful undersea reef creature.
