Helenium hoopesii

Orange Helenium

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.245.050

A native North American wildflower, this is also known as Western Sneezeweed. Despite the name, these do not cause allergies. Plants form a low mound of leathery leaves, bearing upright branching heads of golden-yellow daisies, with an orange eye. Excellent as a cut flower. Appreciates a moist, sunny site. Well suited to naturalizing in a sunny meadow situation, but neat enough to include in the border. Removing faded flowers regularly will greatly increase the blooming time. Attractive to butterflies.
