Its tall structure and bright red colours are particularly useful to me. I like them even more after I visited the Helenium website from Germany. However, many of the red shades of different cultivars are hardly distinguishable between them, and will eventually fade into some brownish red as the season progresses. Most species are native to North America.
It likes moist sunny condition. Dry condition can make it look ugly. Although prune back in early June is a common practice to delay flowering and produce more branching, its tall structure is part of its attraction to me.
