Helenium autumnale Indian Summer - Sneezeweed, Plant in 9cm Pots
Helenium autumnale are native to much of North America and have been grown in the Uk for well over 100 years. A superb late flowering, back of border plant. Masses of single, colourful flowers that extend the flowering period, when many other herbaceous plants are coming to an end. Indian Summer is one of the latest flowering Heleniums, with striking brick orange red single flowers with a darker central cone. Easy to grow in most locations. It is adivsable to support the stems in windy locations. Excellent in a mixed planting, or in groups. Can easily be grown in a pot or other container. Use a good quality compost and ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. .
