Ian - I think so, but you can see it clearly on the darker coloured ones.

Thanks, Toto!

I think it's the truest red one that I've seen. But - all Heleniums are beautiful! I went to visit a National Collection two years ago - and kept saying 'Wow!' at all the beautiful shades of colour!

Beautiful colour and such an apt name.

It certainly is a jewel, I love daisy plants, hence my name.....have just bought more rudbeckias this week!!!!

Goldsturm? Or different ones??

7 Aug, 2009

 

Have got Goldsturm, Prairie Sun two shades of yellow, picture on my page, and a lovely dark one called Cherry Brandy picture to follow, unfortunately it said to treat as an annual, but was bi-annual so will have to collect some seeds.

I've seen pics of that - it looks lovely! I shall take a look at 'Prairie Sun'. :-)
