The species name helenium is said to be a reference to Helen of Troy, who was supposedly collecting Elecampane when Paris captured her. The common name Elecampane is derived from the Latin campana, "of the field."
The roots, leaves, and seeds are edible. The roots can be cooked like other root vegetables; they also can be candied, made into lozenges, used to flavor sweet dishes, or used in the making of wines and liqueurs. The leaves and seeds can be eaten raw.
Elecampane flowers are sometimes included in potpourris, and the root can be burned as incense.
