A strikingly elegant member of the sunflower family, elecampane is native to Europe and Asia. Its Latin name, Inula helenium, is a reference to Helen of Troy, whose tears, as they fell to the ground, are said to have turned into the plant. The Celts considered elecampane sacred and called it "elfwort."
