Tall, late-summer flowering fully hardy perennial. The multi-coloured flowers comprise dark orange-red ray florets tipped with yellow surrounding a prominernt brown cone centre. Plant in full sun and in good fertile soil that retains some moisture in summer.
Helenium 'Dunkel Pracht' grows with a strongly upright habit to about 1.2m in height and would be well suited to the middle or rear of a sunny border, providing a lovely vibrant splash of colour late in the season after many of the summer flowering perennials have got a bit puffed out with all their exertions.
