Product Information

Heleniums are late flowering perennials with spectacular flowers in hot colours. Also known as sneezeweed, they’re invaluable for bringing vibrant colour to the garden from mid-summer until the autumn.

‘Zorro Bicolor’ is a stunning Helenium with toothed leaves and magnificent rich red flowers edged in golden yellow with a chocolate-coloured centre that gradually turns yellow as the flowers age and the stamens appear - a fiery colour combination that’s impossible to ignore from July until September!

Still in full flower when other garden plants are fading away, plant ‘Zorro Bicolor’ in beds and borders or in large pots to create vibrant, flaming displays on your patio. Try underplanting it with Crocosmia to really turn up the heat.

Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' the flowers are a favourite with butterflies and bees and many other insects. Carried on long, straight and strong stems, they are ideal cut flowers, and there are so many of them that you’ll be able to pick them right the way through the flowering season, bringing bold, hot colour into your house.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready for planting, reaching a height of 50cm (20in) and spread of 60cm (2ft).

Top Tips

Deadhead regularly to prolong blooming and cut back by half when flowering has finished. Plants can be cut to the ground in autumn.

Care Information

  • Grow in any fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Provide support for the best results, especially in exposed areas.
  • To plant, firstly water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out some of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed.
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well before adding a mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Water regularly and feed every two weeks with a general purpose fertiliser.
  • Deadhead regularly to encourage more flowers.
  • To keep sneezeweed happy, divide clumps every three years or so to rejuvenate them.
  • Cut back by half after flowering has finished, then cut back to the ground in autumn.
