Buy Helenium 'Moerheim Beauty' sneezeweed: Bright, copper-red, daisy-like flowers and long season

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A succession of dark copper-red daisy-like flowers up to 8cm (3in) across with prominent, dark brown centres from June to August. This beautiful sneezeweed is ideal towards the back of a sunny, moist but well-drained border. It makes a wonderful companion for ornamental grasses and yellow, white or earth-toned flowers. Bees and butterflies love it and it makes an excellent cut flower too. It is a super plant which has been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society.

  • Garden care: Heleniums are versatile plants that love plenty of sunshine and moist soil. They rarely suffer from pests or diseases, however young plants do need to be protected from slug attack. Tall varieties need to be staked. To encourage the plant to repeat flower, deadhead back to side shoots that have flower buds emerging. Cut back by half after flowering to help prevent mildew, and cut down to the ground in late winter. Every two or three years in the spring when the new growth is surging away you can divide the plants to keep them in top condition. Ideally the new growth should be about 7cm high. Either replant them straight into the ground with loads of well-rotted organic matter to feed them and keep them moist, or plant them into pots, but do make sure they are kept watered.

A lovely addition to the garden






Arrived safely, carefully packaged and in great condition as usual. Despite the hot dry conditions this year, this plant has done very well in a sunny spot in the garden. Watered only with grey water. Great for pollinators and beautiful colour when most of the garden is brown now.




Appropriately named


Lovely long flowering perennial

I am looking to plant your firey sumner border. I have space for 3 climbers along the fence behind the border. It's West facing and gets sun from south. Can you suggest suitable rose and if possible 2 different clematis please to give summer long colour.


Hello, For the rose you could use 'Warm Welcome' http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/rosa-warm-welcome--chewizz-pbr/classid.1195/ while two clematis could be 'Niobe' http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/clematis-niobe/classid.910/ or 'Rebecca' http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/clematis-rebecca-evipo016-pbr/classid.2000015732/


thank you for an excellent and informative website.I have bought plants from you before but I want to change/supplement my perennial borders.Should I buy perennials in say 9cm pots now and over winter them in my unheated greenhouse and plant them out in spring or wait to buy in spring and plant out then.I do want a good show of them next year

roger bowers

Hello, 9cm plants establish quickly, and if they are planted out in the border now the soil is still warm enough for them to put on some decent root growth. That ultimately will result in larger plants next year.


Advice on planting your pre-designed Red Summer border Dear sir/madam I am particularly interested in buying the Red Summer Pre Designed Border. Please can you tell me whether these plants are suitable for planting in conjunction with weed inhibiting fabric. I want to minimise the amount of weeding required. Many thanks for your help Ruth

Ruth Hamilton

Hello Ruth, You can plant these into the weed supressing fabric without any trouble at all, provided you make sure the fabric allows the water to drain through. All you need to do is cut big crosses into the fabric and peel back the edges to plant and then fold back the edges again. I hope this helps.

How to get more flowers

Many flowering plants can be encouraged to produce better and longer-lasting displays with the minimum of effort. A plant produces flowers in order to reproduce and ensure the survival of the species. Once a plant has flowered and fertilisation has taken

The Chelsea Chop (and other methods of extending the flowering season)

Many gardeners who are happy, even gung-ho, with the secateurs when pruning shrubs and climbers are surprisingly reluctant to take the shears to herbaceous perennials. Maybe this is because it just doesn't seem quite right to be cutting back all that new

The Chelsea Chop

In the third week of this month you can 'Chelsea chop' your summer-flowering perennials to delay their flowering times. Sedums can be cut back by two thirds to provide lusher foliage, but at the expense of flower.

Summer daisies

Late summer can be a lacklustre month in the garden, but there’s one group of plants that always shine now - and literally look as fresh as a daisy. With their bright ray petals in yellow, orange, pink, purple or white, daisies flag up their presence to p

Add a touch of warm red

Heleniums make great partners for Rudbeckias, igniting those golden yellows with a touch of rufous-red. Taller varieties flower later than their shorter cousins. Helenium 'Rauchtopas’, meaning smoky topaz, has petals swept up like the rim of a sombrero,
