I was given a chunk of the root of this plant a few years ago. I planted it and it has really done well, but what is it??

Is there anything this woman doesn't know? 4 out of 4. You may as well retire greengage!
I found some rather strange looking plants in a secluded corner this afternoon, turned out to be cuckoo pint. Heard an owl this evening too.

Unless I really know I will not comment Silver surfer is excellent, I would have thought the plant above was Inula, I have it growing in my garden but not in flower yet, I like big perennials have never seen Telekia.( Actually I never heard of it)
As for retiring from the site no chance although some might like me to remove myself (Actually one) and if i get more hate mail i will post it on site to embarrass them.

That is terrible Greengage.
No one should get hate mail, just because another person does not agree/does not like them etc.
Surely the moderators for these forums should ban that person.

Well I will put it down to the fact that you were out weeding or something yesterday evening and silver surfer just had the chance to answer first. Put the hate posts up just for the craic!!! You shouldn't have to put up with that, a bit of leg pulling maybe but not hate mail.

Thank you for the answers and sorry for creating such arguments! Wink I have to agree with Greengage though... Inula seems to be the one as the leaves are much longer. So points go to Greengage this time!! Very Happy

I looked up Telekia now i would not doubt silver surfer unless Inula has been renamed, the flowers on Inula look a bit different these seem more compact, ill google both images so you can compare

Have had a look and still cannot tell the difference except Inula has branched flowers and the other does not, Fingers crossed hope im right but i think Silver surfer is correct unless you know for sure.

PS: Just reading back on the above, I didn't mean for you to retire from the site just plant identification greengage. Sure you know I was only joking anyway, tongue in cheek and all that.

My first thought was Elecampane, or Inula Helenium, but I'm open to correction. I've just gone out to look at mine: the leaves are furry on the underside and are very large, at nearly 50cm long. Also, they seem to be less subdivided by veins than do those of the Telekia. Mine won't be flowering this year as it was only transplanted from another part of the garden this spring.

The wild blue yonder is precisely where I have been - sunning myself by the shores of the Med. I've been using the forum a bit, but on a read-only basis most of the time, due to slow wifi connectivity. But now I'm back and raring to go!

Sure that's great as I missed you. Nobody else did mind you but I did. Xxxxxxxx.
Geranimojess has gone to the dark side!!! Did you two meet up eventually?
