Helenium Lord of Flanders
Out of stock
Back in spring 2021. Perennial starter 9cm pot. Helenium Lord of Flanders is a hardy perennial which provides a wonderful burst of colour from mid summer onwards. The centre cones begin as a dark dome that is then covered in pollen which invites the bees to feast. The petals change colour through tones of red as the flower ages. Likes a sunny position in moist but well-drained soil. Basal foliage is dark green tinged with a deep red and the leaves are wider than some of the other heleniums. The stems are strong and I get away with no staking even when the westerlies are making themselves known. Heleniums look great planted with Rudbeckias, salvias, asters, ornamental grasses, dahlias and any other summer-autumn performers. Reaches 80cm +. Winter dormant. Dead head to extend the display further.
