Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Like tiny little, brightly colored flags, the blooms of this new helenium will command attention. Bandera is the newest addition to our ever-popular Mariachi series from the fabulous breeding team at AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands. Deep brick red with a bright golden halo, each ruffled bloom will add color and dimension to your late summer border. Flowering a week to ten days later than the rest of the Mariachi series, Bandera will extend your summer bloom display and add to late summer sales.
