The Heliotropium, or Cherry Pie is a flower that landscapers used in Victorian times. As a summer plant it is well used to plenty of sunshine and summer showers. It’s hayday was in the Victorian era where landscapers used it alonside other popular flower of the time like the Fuchsias and Geraniums. Where the Heliotropium runs into trouble is that each bloom is tiny and the flower heads are large. Also, for Irish gardens where it is often cold and damp, it was a poor choice.
Some landscaping garden designers will choose flowers that are not suited to Irish climates. When this happens the flowers can perform poorly and wither. You can avoid this by choosing the right flowers for our seasons.
