Sowing, Seeds, Planting Heliotrope may be grown as a perennial plant in warmer climates but in the UK it is best treated as an annual since it will not tolerate frost and often becomes leggy in its later years. Both of these look effective planted in summer containers where their colour and scent can be enjoyed at close quarters on a patio or terrace. Protect from frosts and gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions in late spring, over 7-10 days before moving to their final position.
