Nice variety of helenium. Not too tall; does not require any support. It blooms prolifically and I like the color. Pests seem to leave it alone -- a big plus in this year of the Japanese beetle plague.

Positive bigcityal On Aug 29, 2006, bigcityal from Menasha, WI (Zone 5a) wrote:

Dark red/carmine type color. Petals droop and are maybe a bit smaller in size. Height is shorter than a lot of helenium.
