This bold border plant has larger than usual golden ray-flowers, often reaching over 2 inches across. Their raised, nob-like centers are surrounded by swirls of semi-double golden ray florets. Discovered in our gardens at Joy Creek Nursery as a seedling of unknown parentage, Helenium 'Tijuana Brass' quickly surpasses other comparable cultivars in height, upright habit and size of flower. Where other heleniums often lose their lowest foliage, the foliage at the base of Helenium 'Tijuana Brass' remains green and attractive throughout the season. We often pinch back the plant at midseason to keep it compact, but even unpruned the plant remains sturdy and upright.
