Plant Details

Less well known than the more common Helenium autumnale, this species comes from the North American Rocky Mountains and is superb in the border and also for cutting. Bright orange-yellow daisy flowers on tall stems from May to September.

Loved by bees and butterflies.

Ideal for cut flowers.

Height: 70cm

Heleniums are lovely autumn-flowering plants that are perfect colour-makers for the season. Long-blooming, these showy, clump-forming perennials enjoy upright, branching stems with slender, toothed leaves topped with eye-catching daisy flowers, in shades of brilliant yellow, orange or red, centered with a prominent, yellow or chocolate center cone. They are highly popular for their reliable and showy display, their disease resistance and their tolerance to any soil conditions aside from very dry or very wet.

Syns: Hymenoxys hoopesii, Dugaldia hoopesii

Common name(s): Mountain Helenium, Orange Sneezeweed, Owl's Claws

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
