Helenium ‘Coppelia’
at Digging Dog

Helenium  Coppelia

Helenium

Helensflower

Legend has it that Helenium first grew on ground watered with the tears of Helen of Troy. The backbone of the late season garden, Helenium sends out branching stems covered with yellow, orange and bronze daisy-like flowers that have sculpted, conical centers and fringed, silky petals.

In areas of high wind or heavy rain, the stout stems may need support.

From the same group of seedlings that produced ‘Bruno’ comes ‘Coppelia’, the selection that holds first place in Alan Bloom’s heart for its earlier bloom and shorter stature. Large coppery red blooms supported by sturdy stems offer sumptuous colors for the late season border.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 3' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
