You do have a spiritual duty

The answer you planted into the twenty seventh of thirty plant beds in the Dijksgracht park, part of the Twijfel Zaaien/Casting Doubts project.

Latin name: Inula helenium
Artist family: Modernist

Colour: Yellow

Where was this made?:

Elecampane is a very rigid and hardy herb. Its stem can attain a height of 150 cm, making it the tall plant that grows among others in the garden bed. It reflects the plant’s tendency not to be bond to conventions in addition to its desire to really making a difference. It wants to break those social taboos in the tallest and strongest way possible. It also has a very thick, branching and mucilaginous root, which reenforces this strength: its power to break and dominate its soil.
