Exciting Colour that Won't Fade!
An interesting new colour for helenium! This variety produces tight clusters of small, dusky red flowers, with a hint of blue. Some flowers may have yellow-tipped petals, but the colour remains consistent as the flower matures, unlike some other heleniums that change colour as they age. Cut back old blooms to encourage new flowers, and to attract butterflies to flit amongst your back border or cutting garden.
