@sieveheadsarah - it produces loads of flowers though. They would look better close up but wanted to show you the volume and number - if you scroll to earlier pics I’ve done previous zoomed in pics.

Oh wow, it’s huge Richard, I need to be careful where I’ll plant it 🤨👍🏼 I love the close up pics, it’s such an unusual flower that I can’t wait to grow. Thanks for taking the pic 😀😀

No probs 👍🏼, I also always give it a chelsea chop, seems to help it fill out very well @sieveheadsarah

I think this is a leaf-cutter bee (Megachile spp.), it’s underside was completely yellow, and was covered in pollen. It was moving across the flower differently to other bees #helenium #helenium-puberulum #heleniumpuberulumautumnlollipop #beefriendly #bee #leafcutterbee #megachile #sneezeweed

Early season Sneezeweed, this one has very small flowers, almost like little petticoats really, but also seems to attract lots of pollinators #helenium #sneezeweed #beefriendly #helenium-puberulum #heleniumpuberulumautumnlollipop

I thought so too Kerry. Takes a while to appreciate as on their own a couple of flowers doesn’t look all that special but as it gets bigger you start to appreciate it 😊 @kez001uk

These are not big, they are quite tiny. But there are lots of them in bud 😬 - this is one fully open #helenium #helenium-puberulum #heleniumpuberulumautumnlollipop #sneezeweed

Picked this Helenium up in the autumn but didn't get round to planting it yet. It's still putting out #newgrowth even in the cold months #helenium #helenium-puberulum #heleniumpuberulumautumnlollipop #sneezeweed

I just bought Helenium 'Butterpat'. It's going to be a long 9 months or so until I see it flower. Not quite as much growth on it as this - it was almost frozen solid, but crucially half price 🤑
