Helenium 'Moerheim Beauty'
This brightly-coloured perennial of crowded russet-red flowers gracefully to autumnal amber. Widespread natives of the great North America prairies, these humble flowers associate perfectly with grasses. Awarded the RHS Order of Merit.
Plant in full sun in free draining soil. Remove spent flowering stems and don’t allow to dry out to keep plants tidy and promote repeat flowering. Trim plant back after flowering or leave attractive seed cones for seasonal effect. Clumps will increase naturally in ideal conditions, divide plants every 3-4 years in autumn.
