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.
One of the largest flowered Heleniums, ‘Zimbelstern’s undulating, brilliantly golden, mahogany-splashed petals converge at a russet eye. Before its enthusiastic bloom, strong stems sport unusual chartreuse buds that have a joy all their own.
Blooms late August–mid-October.
Size: 4' 0" – 4-1/2' high x 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
