Early to bloom Heleniums — 9 Comments

  1. I love the colour of the helenium Waltraut alongside your agapanthus. Such a lovely contrast. I love helenium but I find in my garden they do not come back the next year so I have to treat them as annuals. Did you put yours in the ground last September or did you overwinter them?

    • That’s an expensive annual, Ellen.I purchased these Heleniums last September, not much more than large plugs. Potted them up and left them outdoors all Winter, I then planted them in the border in April this year. If they survived Winter in small pots, I will be surprised if they do not survive in the border.

  2. Alistair,
    what a treat these Helenium Waltraut and Wesergold! I liked very much.
    I have to find seeds of these heleniums and grow seedlings next spring. They are perennial that I want to my new garden.

  3. Hello Alistair !
    I love your multicoloured Helenium in different hues of orange and gold, my absolute favorite and I had not heard of that variety yet. I used to have Sahin’s Early which threw out those colours but it has been a while since I have had them now. I will be looking for that variety and hopefully I can find it. Does that laurel have a fragrance ? it is very pretty.
    Your garden is always so neat and tidy and so interesting because you have so many varieties.
    I’m more than happy to have Autumn approaching .. it is my favorite time of year.

  4. I love heleniums and have a very low one – 50 cm. The name is ‘Short’n Sassy’. Unfortunately it gets ‘ugly legs’ with brown leaves. Do your heleniums have the same problem? My plants grow in pot and I don’t know if that is the reason.
