Plant Features

Fragrant Delight Heliotrope Plants bear intensely aromatic clusters of royal purple flowers that slowly fade to lavender as they age. The robust cherry-vanilla fragrance is a favorite! Heliotrope are easy to grow, drought and heat tolerant, deer and rabbits avoid them and hummingbirds, butterflies, and other insect pollinators are attracted to them. They are not pet friendly.

Heliotrope Plant Care Instructions: The plant appreciates moist soil, fertilizer applications every 2-3 weeks, and removal of the spent blooms to produce best. It is grown as an annual in all zones except 9-11 where it will overwinter.

GREAT company!!!

I have ordered plants for MANY different companies and these came in the best shape and have reacted well to planting. I was truly amazed by the quality of the plant!!

I order heliotropes each year and I'm never disappointed! They are healthy plants and grow to be large and so fragrant. Definitely one of my favorites on my patio! Thank you😃

Healthy plant

I'm so happy with how large and healthy these were upon arrival.

Superior plants!

My Heliotrope arrived in perfect shape. Plants are about 10 tall and very bushy. In no time I noticed flower buds developing and now they are in full bloom. Extremely happy with my purchase. Thank you, GrowJoy!

Fragrant Delight Heliotrope Plant

I ordered two of the Fragrant Delight Heliotrope plants and they both arrived large and very healthy. Three weeks later there are small purple blooms on them, but I haven't been able to detect any fragrance yet - hopefully once they mature a little more. Very pleased with the shipping and especially the customer service from GrowJoy! Cassandra is the best!!

I ordered these late in the season, but they arrived very healthy looking and they are flourishing in their pots.

Love the smell

When you water the Fragrant Delight Heliotrope and the sun hits it it has the aroma of Sweet Apple Pie. Love this plant and it a came to my door in good condition.

I couldn't find Heliotropes anywhere so I took a chance and ordered them here. They arrived large, healthy, and packaged securely. I am very pleased and will order here again.

Fragrant Delight Heliotrope

This is my 4th or 5th year ordering from GrowJoy and they have exceeded my expectations once again. Even with the harsh past winter my plants arrived healthy and carefully packaged. I wish all online nurseries were this exceptional!

Cherry Pie Plant

My two Fragrant Delight plants arrived a little tattered from their trip across the country, but perked up as soon as I transplanted them and now they are smelling good enough to eat.

The Fragrant Delight Heliotrope plants arrived just before I left on vacation and were flowering by the time I came back. I am delighted with them.
