PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Helenium puberulum 'Autumn Lollipop'|
|Sneezewort 'Autumn Lollipop'|
|This most unusual plant has spherical, bronze yellow heads with ruffles of yellow petals beneath, like little petticoats, on strong, straight stems with rich green foliage. It makes a unique cut flower.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow in a propagator or sealed plastic bag onto the surface of good quality, moist compost at 55-59F/13-15C. Do not exclude light as this is needed for germination, which usually takes 14-21 days. Transplant seedlings into individual pots when large enough to handle. Harden off before planting out in final positions 12in/30cm apart. Autumn sowings are best overwintered in a cold frame.|
