Helenium Moerheim Beauty have fantastic showy flowers, guaranteed to bring vibrant colour to the garden in late Summer. It’s erect, branching stems are clothed in slender, lance shaped dark green leaves, topped with showy, daisy shaped flowers in clusters with dark, coppery red flowers with prominent chocolate coloured centre cones, blooming from late July to the end of August and even into September.
One of the taller varieties, Helenium Moerheim Beauty is ideally suited to the back of the border, fantastic planted in drifts through a mixed planting scheme. Good companion plants are taller grasses, other daisy-like flowers such as Echinacea and Rudbeckia or try with Crocosmia or Achillea. They are also ideal for wildlife areas where their later season flowers are popular with bees and other pollinators. Some of these taller varieties can lean forward or topple in high winds and these may need staking support later in the season. They also make an excellent cut flower.

For best results grow Helenium Moerheim Beauty in herbaceous/mixed borders or as ground cover in full sun in fertile, moist and well-drained soil. Water regularly to prevent the soil from drying out. To encourage the plant to repeat flower, deadhead back to side shoots that have flower buds emerging, and then cut the plant back as it dies off in Winter. Divide congested clumps every few years, in Spring or Autumn to avoid the middle dying which can weaken the entire plant.
As a rough guide when planting Helenium Moerheim Beauty as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage, and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
