Helenium 'Garden Sun'
Another reliable summer performer, this one starts flowering slightly earlier than 'Sunny Wonder' and is pure yellow as well, except the central cone is dark. I also noticed that many of the petals on the first flowers to open had red flecks on them, as if they had been lightly dusted with red pollen from a paint brush. Another fab pollinator plant too, 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.
