Also known as Cherry Pie, heliotrope was immensely popular during the Victorian era in England. A bouquet of heliotrope was laid on Emily Dickinson’s coffin. This deliciously fragrant flower has fallen out of the spotlight in modern times. Native to Peru, compact plants stand 18-24 inches high, perfect for the front border. Also an excellent cut flower. We think it’s high time that these diminutive flowers once again bring their intoxicating vanilla fragrance to gardens everywhere! Caution, all parts of this plant are poisonous, especially to horses!
