Heliotrope has been making a comeback in recent years, having been vastly popular in gardens a few decades ago. It brings a classic and cottagey touch to any garden, and will certainly stun anyone who comes across it. With small clusters of delicate, fragrant and colourful flowers, that some say smell like vanilla, this annual will truly make your garden an experience for all the senses.
Heliotrope can be a bit pickier in its requirements for healthy growing- however it is well worth it! They enjoy full sun, for around 6 hours a day, and preferably morning sun. Afternoon sun can scorch the plant, and it should in fact be shaded in the afternoon. They enjoy rich, loamy soil with even moisture.
