The gold to tangerine blooms have a crimson blush that increases with age. No two flowers are the same which creates a stunning effect en masse. Plant them in groups for an amazing colour show from late summer to autumn.

The seed heads of Helenium 'Crimson Beauty' will remain standing through winter creating interest.

Keep the soil moist for best flowers and plant in a sunny position. The soil needs to be well drained, moderately fertile to humus rich are suitable. Remove spent flower heads at the start of the bloom season to encourage even more. The flowers will grow larger in areas where the nights are cool.

Helenium look best when planted in groups or swathes. Good companions include Crocosmia, Dahlias such as 'Bishop of Llandaff', golden Helenium or Echinacea. Plant them in groups and the colony will increase year after year.
