Description Sowing How to Grow Delivery
Helenium 'Helena Red Shades' is a well behaved perennial, filling gaps in late summer borders and making an excellent cut flower. Their vibrant blooms add a bright splash of colour to the garden just when many plants are beginning to fade. Charming daisy-like flowers are borne on sturdy, upright stems providing pollinating insects with a good source of nectar, late in the season. A superb choice for prairie planting schemes, cottage gardens and wildlife areas. Height: 80cm (31"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Flowering Months
Helenium prefers a sunny position on reliably moist soil that is rich in organic matter. Add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil to improve its structure and fertility prior to planting.
Feed and water plants regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded helenium flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Divide overcrowded clumps of helenium in spring and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant.
