Inula need plenty of space to grow and can become invasive so take care when choosing an appropriate site.
Taller varieties may need staking in exposed areas. Ensure that the soil is kept moist, particularly in periods of drought. It may be useful to apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture levels and suppress weeds whilst supplementing the soil with additional nutrition. Once flowering has ended in autumn, cut back the stems to encourage further growth from varieties that should appear in the following season.
It is possible to propagate Inula by division in autumn and spring or softwood cuttings or seed in the spring.
