Rare plant from the Himalayas

Pushkarmool has notoriously low germination rate. Pushkarmool is a perennial relative of elecampane with beautiful yellow slender-petaled daisy-like flowers and highly medicinal roots. It is clump-forming, and at maturity grows up to 7ft tall and 3 or 4ft wide. It makes a great specimen plant for a perennial garden. Native to the Himalayan region (including India, Tibet, Xinjiang, Kashmir, Nepal, and Afghanistan), it is reportedly increasingly endangered due to over-harvesting and habitat destruction. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is used for pulmonary problems, including asthma, coughing, and chest pain. It has also been used against liver problems, tuberculosis, cardiac disorders, gonorrhea, and diabetes. Always consult a qualified herbal practitioner before using this plant medicinally or a qualified aromatherapist if using its essential oil, especially if pregnant.
