Heleniums are sun loving perennials hardy to about zone 6. The flowers have a large centre, with brightly coloured outer petals. In this variety the outer petals are yellow blotched orange. They bloom in late summer.
Their growth habit is moderately tall and narrow making them useful for the centre of a perennial border. They are often used in 'prairie' style planting. They may need staking.
Heleniums require a sunny site and well drained soil.
They need regular lifting, dividing and replanting.
