The gold to tangerine blooms have a crimson blush that increases with age. No two flowers are the same which creates a stunning massed effect. Plant them in groups for an amazing colour show from late summer to autumn.
The spent flowers of Helenium 'Crimson Beauty' will remain standing through winter creating interest, especially if you like the golden brown effect in your garden.
Keep the soil moist for best flowers and plant it in a sunny position. The soil needs to be well drained and humus rich is best. Remove spent flower heads during blooming to encourage more blooms. The flowers of Helenium 'Crimson Beauty' grow larger in areas where there are cool nights.
Helenium look best when planted in groups or swathes.
Good companions include Crocosmia, Dahlias such as 'Bishop of Llandaff', golden Helenium or Alstroemerias. Plant them in groups and the colony will increase year after year.
