Can anyne please confirm for me if the attached photos are
Helenium Moerheim Beauty. I purchased them online in February about 30 plants to make drifts to mingle with my Daisy Highland Dream. So far I am disappointed as before I purchased I googled the images and the flowers look a lot bigger and brighter than what I have. If it is Helenium Moerheim Beauty, is this as big as the flowers will get? Many thanks.

Maybe it is but if so it's a disappointing stunted version of it. Had some last year and they were almost one metre tall and a really bright red rosette of petals . A really lovely show and certainly not like this. Your plant looks healthy but the flowers are mis-shapen.

I think the slugs must have had my young shoots this year because they have disappeared.

Oh I am gutted, I paid £7.99 per plant and I got 30 of them, £240 in total. I could cry!!!!

I think I would send a picture to the seller and ask for a response.

Ok, yes it looks like Moreheim beauty but...

It's not been the best start for newly planted herbaceous perennials. I have the same and mine is supposed to be 3 feet tall and flower from july to frosts.

Herbaceous doesn't look much until the second or third year so please be sure they'll soon look a treat

I think they just haven't got going properly yet. The yellowy flowers will open out into red - slugs do like them unfortunately so the one red one that's showing looks as if it has been nibbled. They are a beautiful plant and will be lovely - just be patient!

I agree with Cornishsally - the flowers haven't fully opened yet
