Helenium  Flammendes Käthchen

late August–mid-October.



<i>Helenium</i> ‘Flammendes Käthchen’

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.

Long after other flowers have had their say, this tall, back-of-the-border Helenium delivers a bonfire of color. Henna-red and burnt orange petals, streaked with gilt hues, surround velvety brown centers, looking like the twirling skirts of flamenco dancers.

Size: 5' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
