Hi winniecat , i dont know if its true but I am sure I read somewhere that heleniums don't come true to seed. Ideally I would like to grow everything from seed

Thanks Verdun, I would prefer James Compton but I do like the Brunette as well. The heleniums  I am looking at are Sahin - Moerheim beauty - feuersiegel - Waltraut.

Hello, how fast do Heleniums spread ? I making an order soon and I am unsure on how many plants to order? 

I am buying them off dorest perennials its the only place I can find who sell Actaea simplex james compton, I thought I buy the heleniums at the same time. Has anybody had any dealing with dorest perennials ?
