Helenium autumnale Mariachi™ ‘Salsa’


Fall Helenium

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.245.570


Also known as Helen’s Flower, or Sneezeweed, there are many fine hybrid selections, valued for their late summer display of bright daisy-like flowers. This compact variety is part of the Mariachi™ Series and features spicy, red petals with a hit of orange surrounding a dark brown cone. Good branching habit, terrific for cutting. From Arie Blom of AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
