Description

Masses and masses of flaming orange flowers with yellow eyes smother this low-growing shrubby perennial, lending a bright pop of colour to spring and early summer borders, when pastel shades normally dominate.

Helianthemum 'Fire Dragon' commences flowering in late spring, coinciding with later spring bulbs. The sizzling flowers are complemented by cool, silver-grey, evergreen foliage. Lightly clip plants over after flowering and they will grow into neat hummocks that soften border edges and rockeries, creating pleasing shapes and foliage textures throughout the year. After shearing plants will often have a second, smaller flush of flowers. Thriving in a sunny, free-draining site, these tough little rock roses are drought-tolerant and trouble free. They make excellent groundcover in hot, dry borders and provide food for pollinators early in the season at a time when resources are scarce. Height: 20cm (8in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant rock roses into moderately fertile, neutral or alkaline soil, in full sun. Helianthemum dislike wet ground, particularly during winter. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting. Once established, rock roses can easily tolerate dry sandy soils.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young plants become established. Once established, rock roses are relatively drought tolerant and require minimal maintenance. After flowering, prune helianthemum stems back to within 3cm (1”) of the previous year’s growth.
