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.

Helenium ‘Rotgold’ (P-1682)

Each 8.75

AVAILABLE MARCH 2021

A dashing straight-backed German introduction, ‘Rotgold’s bicolored flowers flash deep red petals with bright sunny yellow margins plus prominent dome-like flaxen, maroon and chocolate-colored centers. Obovate 4 in. long medium green leaves anchor the sumptuous long blooming floral extravaganza that can cozy up to Veronicastrum ‘Red Arrow’, Phlox ‘Blue Paradise’ and Schizachyrium ‘Jazz’ in a meadow-inspired venue, prairie-style planting or perennial border.

Blooms July–September

Size: 3' 0" – 4' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 4.
