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' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
