Through the extreme heat and drought conditions of last Summer this Helenium grew well in our clay based composted growing beds with no irrigation. The resulting mass of stunning flowers ablaze in burgundy red and mahogany were soothing to our soul. Synonymous with 'Dark Beauty' it grows to 80cm x 60cm wide and tolerates most soil types except asphyxiating clays. Does best in full sun with good Winter drainage. The addition of organic matter to the soil will encourage growth and larger flower heads.
