With their abundant, tall daisy flowers in rich marmalade shades, heleniums are an ideal complement to ornamental grasses in late summer. In this short clip from Gardeners’ World, Monty Don plants two choice varieties – ‘Moerheim Beauty’ and ‘Sahin’s Early Flowerer’ – in his Grass Garden. Watch now to see how well they work together, and pick up tips on how and where to plant them, and how to encourage them to keep on flowering.
