Legend has it that Helenium first grew on ground watered with the tears of Helen of Troy. The backbone of the late season garden,
Helenium sends out branching stems covered with yellow, orange and bronze daisy-like flowers that have sculpted, conical centers and fringed, silky petals.
In areas of high wind or heavy rain, the stout stems may need support.
Renown for its rich, buttery yellow blooms, ‘Butter-pat’s fulgent, late season parade is a welcome event in our garden. The sunny petals are gathered by green-tinged golden cones, while tall, stiff stems clothed in lance-shaped leaves stand sentinel below. Try planting this robust
cultivar with Salvia ‘Nekan’, Sedum ‘Neon’ and Calamagrostis brachytricha for a lively gathering.
Size: 4' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 4.
Helenium ‘Butterpat’ (P-1271)
