Helenium 'Helena Red' produces deep maroon giant blooms similar to that of a daisy. With flecks of orange on the outer edges of the petals, these stunning flowers stand atop sturdy stems and reach a height of 50cm. This clump forming perennial attracts butteries and bees in the garden and flourish if planted in well-drained fertile soil. Ideal for patio containers or garden borders where they can help to make a feature if planted alongside contrasting colours of Helenium. These striking flowers also make beautiful cut-flower displays to be enjoyed within the home. Flower from June through to September. UK-grown 5cm module plants supplied.
