Helenium Mardi Gras

Fall Helenium

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.245.400

(='Helbro') Also known as Helen’s Flower, or Sneezeweed, there are many fine hybrid selections, valued for their late summer display of bright daisy-like flowers. This tall variety has bright yellow petals, tie-dyed with flame orange around a brown center. Plants may need to be staked to prevent flopping. Great for cutting. If desired, pinch plants by pruning to half their height in mid June to keep them more bushy and compact. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#15124: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
