Comments about High Country Gardens Heliopsis helianthoides Burning Hearts:
Bought 2 of these last Spring and planted in 2 separate planters. They took a little time getting going but once they did get going they did well. Had no flopping problem with either of them. Unique purple stems with yellow/red flowers. Had many flowers blooming the first Summer/Fall after planting in Spring. Live in Western WA close to Puget Sound water.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I ordered three of these flowers to put in the back of my garden. When they arrived I knew that they would not survive. They were so small and did not have any signs of life. I was not happy with the "dormant" status of these plants. As I predicted they never came out of dormancy and withered to nothing no matter what I did to help them along. I did contact customer service and was refunded my money. I won't be ordering these again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I grew 8 Heliopsis 'Burning Hearts' plants this past summer
from Columbia, Missouri
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 darkpurple stems, leaves that are dark green with a hint of purple with purple veins. I took awayone 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 wouldbe a good idea and improve the overall look and maybe promote even heavier flowering. Overalla very nice unique Heliopsis and I recommend it to others to try in that it is easy to grow (in near or full sun).
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.
