Helenium Heaven

I think I am totally besotted ? with this new Helenium I bought this year. Morheim Beauty really didn't mind the not so perfect place I managed to squeeze it in .. along with the not so perfect lighting to go with it .. and yet it is such an eye catcher I can't believe it ! .. Yes, waves of a guilty gardener who should have done a much better job in situating a beautiful plant in a more agreeable spot ? I know I have posted pictures of it before and yet I can't stop taking pictures of this gorgeous "sneezeweed"

The shape of it is sort of like the coneflower, isn't it? Don't think I've ever grown that. No, guess I haven't. But I love the color!

Brenda .. hi ! .. I have grown Helenium of the older cultivars .. but these new ones are a WOW on colour blends .. I bet you would like some in your garden !!!

Jane Marie said...

I've never grown helenium. It looks like a relative to a daisy. Is it a coneflower? Whatever it is, it is very pretty and I can see you are enamored!

I love the color and how the flowers seem to be dancing.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi lady bug .. I laughed over that raccoon video .. too funny !
Yes .. these flowers seem to dance don't they ?

Jane Marie .. they are actually members of the daisy family .. asteraceae .. and there are a lot of cultivars to choose from .. this one is new to me this year and I love it !
