HELIOTROPE – Cherry Pie

Tried & True Heliotrope

Tried & True Heliotrope

These old-fashioned flowers may have been at the forefront in your grandmother’s garden. But, their renewed popularity is no surprise, considering their attractive foliage, flowers, and scent. Very few bedding plants have Heliotrope’s reputation for fragrance. Reminiscent of vanilla, the Heliotrope’s scent gave rise to its common name used years ago: the cherry pie plant. Heliotrope can be used for mass planting and beds. But ideally, it is best grown in window boxes and containers and place on patios where the fragrant flowers can be enjoyed. Combine Heliotrope with yellow or white flowering plants, or plants with burgundy leaves for a striking colour contrast. It attracts hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden.
