Helenium ‘Mariachi Siesta’ from Plants Nouveau

Brought to Plants Nouveau from Arie Blom of AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands, the Mariachi series of Helenium autumnalis is compact and bushy. Cultivars are available in brilliant tomato red, fiery orange, glowing gold and sunshine yellow. These plants come from the lab potyvirus free, so please replace your stock each year.

The series features include:

  • No mildew
  • Don’t flop
  • Easily scheduled for summer or early fall blooms
  • Brilliant colors

New colors for 2014 are:

  • Salsa – spicy red flowers with a hint of orange
  • Fuego – orange flowers with a bright gold halo
  • Siesta – a deep true red with ruffled edges

Siesta will add dimension to your garden with its deep red, rounded blooms. This spectacular helenium will stand alone and upright in your garden as a colorful beacon to draw your eye deep into the border. Its round, compact habit stands tall and does not flop in the garden, and this shade of red goes so well with other blues and yellows in the border. The flowers of Siesta are a true red, a much bluer red than we normally see in heleniums.
