Blooms that remind you of the afternoon sun.

Helenium Mariachi™ Siesta

This brightly colored beauty is reminiscent of the late afternoon sun - the perfect time for a siesta! Deep bluish-red ray petals surround a maroon and yellow cone to make a lovely two-toned effect.

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. Siesta is like a beacon for the summer border.  One look at the brightly colored blooms in the mid afternoon sun and you'll want to get your sombrero, a cool beverage and a nice shady spot to take time out for a nap.

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.
