Helenium ‘Rubinzwerg’

Helenium

Helensflower

Legend has it that Helenium first grew on ground watered with the tears of Helen of Troy. The backbone of the late season garden, they send out branching stems covered with red, yellow, orange and bronze daisy-like flowers that have sculpted conical centers and fringed satiny petals. In areas of high wind or heavy rain, the stout stalks may need support.

<i>Helenium</i> ‘Rubinzwerg’

Plushly colored in chocolate brown and gold, each round hub centers a carousel of dark brick red petals, exhibiting orange-yellow striations as they age, while smooth-edged lanceolate leaves cloak the sturdy upstanding stems below. Wildly popular in Europe, this compact shorter statured Helenium makes a welcome addition to any garden, especially when showcased with Monardas and Panicums.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 2' 0" – 2-1/2' high x 15" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.
