Description
Fiery orange-red blooms stand out beautifully against the dark chocolate foliage of this handsome hardy perennial. Heliopsis ‘Red shades’ has an upright, branching habit, but remains compact enough for patio pots, making this a versatile choice for your summer containers and borders. The blooms are borne in abundance throughout the summer, attracting pollinating insects to the garden. If you can spare a few blooms they also make lovely cut flowers to enjoy in a vase indoors. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").

How to Grow
Grow Heliopsis on fertile, moist, well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.

More Info
Feed and water regularly until fully established. This upright perennial may require staking. Deadhead faded flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring.
