Helenium ‘Rotgold’
at Digging Dog

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.

Helenium ‘Rotgold’ full sun  new plant

A dashing straight-backed German introduction, ‘Rotgold’s bicolored flowers flash deep red petals with bright sunny yellow margins plus prominent dome-like flaxen, maroon and chocolate-colored centers. Obovate 4 in. long medium green leaves anchor the sumptuous long blooming floral extravaganza that can cozy up to Veronicastrum ‘Red Arrow’, Phlox ‘Blue Paradise’ and Schizachyrium ‘Jazz’ in a meadow-inspired venue, prairie-style planting or perennial border.

Blooms July–September

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our fall arrangement includes: Asters Hydrangeas Miscanthus Molinias Persicarias Salvias Verbenas

I wanted this arrangement to celebrate the diverse beauty that autumn affords. It was photographed by acclaimed garden photographer, Saxon Holt, who happened to be visiting us.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers, last chance for Fantastic Fall Sale, Gift Certificates now on sale!

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
