Comments about High Country Gardens Heliopsis helianthoides Burning Hearts:
I planted 10 seeds on the late side - June 7 here in Central Missouri this past summer.
I was able to get 8 mature plants rather fast and all had lots of flowers.
They lived mostly up to expectations. Each plant varied a bit in its appearance, so
not a very uniform appearance, which didn't bother me but might for some people.
Lovely bicolor blooms that are similar to some of the better Black Eyed Susan cultivars.
A nice reddish mahogany center that lasted well into maturity of the flowers. Nice very dark
purple stems, leaves that are dark green with a hint of purple with purple veins. I took away
one star in that all the plants flopped to the ground, I was hoping for stiffer stems. All were
under two feet this first season, but should be taller next year and perhaps have stiffer stems.
Probably dead heading the flowers once they start loosing their bicolor characteristic would
be a good idea and improve the overall look and maybe promote even heavier flowering. Overall
a very nice unique Heliopsis and I recommend it to others to try in that it is easy to grow (in near or full sun).

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
