Deep copper-red flowers with prominent red and yellow centres are a magnet for bees and butteflies and are produced in summer. A more compact variety than others in the helenium family.
Prefers a moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Remove spent blooms to encourage prolonged flowering. When flowering is over and new growth is visible, remove all flowering stems so the new growth receives lots of light. This will help the plant to establish itself before the onset of winter.
