Three top performers in our helenium trial last summer. With all three, if you do the 'Chelsea Chop' in May, reducing a third of the stems by one third and a third by two-thirds, they flower right through summer and autumn. I love them for picking too.This collection contains 1 plant each of:
- Helenium autumnale 'Salsa' (Mariachi Series)
- Helenium autumnale 'Short and Sassy'
- Helenium 'Sahin's Early Flowerer'
Support the heavy stems with a network of hazel sticks. Keep deadheading towards the end of summer to encourage new flowers. Divide in spring or autumn.
