Heleniums have very characteristic flower shapes quite unlike those of other daisy flowers, and provide a welcome spash of colour late in the season. The crimson red of Helenium ‘Moerheim Beauty’ is useful for both hot, orange-red planting schemes, paired with orange or yellow flowers such as red-hot poker, solidago or other late daisy flowers such as rudbeckias and heliopsis. Alternatively use in a pastel scheme with pink Japanese anemones and Michaelmas daisies. The flowers are attractive to bees and are useful for cutting.

Grow Helenium ‘Moerheim Beauty’ in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Plants will not reach their final height until their second year. To restrict their size, cut back to about 30cm tall in May. This not only reduces their final height but will also delay flowering by a week or two. To propagate, divide plants in spring.
