Helenium autumnale ‘Helena Gold’
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.

A flower arranger’s darling and a welcome sight in a summer border, ‘Helena Gold’ earned glowing kudos at North Carolina State University’s recent Speciality Cut Trails. Tall well-branched thick stems and verdant greenery shoulder a splendid sunburst of plentiful dark yellow daisies that lasts for several months and occurs in the first year. Easily grown and never water thirsty, this robust perennial exhibits a long vase life and can be coupled with Echinops ‘Blue Glow’ and Salvia ‘Nekan’ for charming French country colors in your garden.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 3-1/2'–4' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
