Heleniums have charming, daisy-like flowers guaranteed to bring vibrant colour to the garden in late summer.
With blooms in hot yellows, orange and red, they look fantastic planted in drifts through a mixed border. Good companion plants are taller grasses, other daisy flowers such as echinaceas, or hot-coloured kniphofias. There are hundreds of cultivars to choose from and these bright flowers with their cone-like centres are also good for attracting bees and other pollinators. Heleniums also make good cut flowers.
