Fuego Helenium

Fuego Helenium

Bees and butterflies love the bicolour blooms.

It's fun and easy to help out your local pollinator population—just include this two-toned beauty in your garden design. Daisy-like blooms feature orange-red petals with sunny yellow halos and tips, all surrounding a prominent, brown cone. These flowers cover the compact plant for an extended period, delivering late-season colour and a charming form. Bred to be a sturdy, floriferous perennial, Fuego doesn't disappoint in borders, containers or as a colourful cut flower.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
