Heliopsis h. var. scabra 'Bleeding Hearts' (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: False Sunflower, Sunflower Heliopsis
Prized as the first seed strain of Heliopsis without yellow on its flowers, this blooms from July until frost. The new flowers emerge intense orange red and mature to golden orange with red centers. Deep green leaves with bronze highlights and black flower stems complete the look. A taller plant suitable to the middle or back of the border. From Jelitto.
Compared to 'Tuscan Sun' and Tuscan Gold™, this variety is more compact. Like other variegated Heliopsis, 'Bit of Honey' is hardy to zone 4.
Heliopsis have traditionally been an excellent tall perennial for the middle or back of the flower border. It has a bushy, well-branched form and glossy, deep green, triangular leaves - a real workhorse in the garden! Use this plant in combination containers, as a cut flower, or to attract butterflies to your garden.
