A welcomed red blooming perennial for the summer garden

Helenium Mariachi™ Salsa

One look at the spicy red flowers and the dark chocolate button centers and the deeply colored selection will remind you of a fresh bowl of pico de gallo.

Brought to us from AB-Cultivars  in The Netherlands, these new compact, bushy helenium 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 we've ever seen.  It's like looking at a bowl 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.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
