Helenium 'Garden Sun'
Another reliable summer performer with good vigour, this one has beautiful yellow flowers with a contrasting central brown cone, which I love. I've also noticed that many of the petals on the first flowers to open have red flecks on them, as if they have been lightly dusted with red pollen from a paint brush. Another fab pollinator plant, this one is loved by the bees and hoverflies. Prefers a sunny spot with reasonable soil. Divide every third year. Flowering height 90-120cm, allow 30-40cm between plants. 9cm pot.
