Brought to us from Arie Blom of AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands, these new compact, bushy sneezeweed selections are sure to brighten any summer garden. With selections in brilliant tomato red, fiery orange, glowing gold and sunshine yellow. Mexican culture came to mind. These plants come from the lab POTY virus free, so please replace your stock each year.
Salsa is the brightest red helenium I've ever seen. It's like looking at a bol of super ripe vine grown tomatoes. Not many plants bloom red in the summer, so this is a welcomed addition to an otherwise orange and yellow palette.
