Growing information: 

Helenium, also known as sneezeweed, is a perennial flower that belongs to the Asteraceae family. With its daisy-like blooms and rich hues of red and orange Helenium is a popular choice among garden enthusiasts.


Helenium thrives in full sun, so it is important to choose a location in your garden that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. The soil should be well-draining, as Helenium does not tolerate wet feet.

Prepare the soil by removing any weeds or debris. Helenium prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Incorporate organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, to improve soil fertility and drainage.

Plant Helenium in the spring or early summer, after the danger of frost has passed. Dig a hole that is slightly larger than the root ball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole, making sure that the crown is level with the soil surface. Backfill the hole and gently firm the soil around the plant.

Water newly planted Helenium regularly to help establish a strong root system. Once established, Helenium is moderately drought-tolerant and only requires supplemental watering during prolonged dry periods.

Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates.

Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming. Cut the flower stalks back to the base of the plant in late fall or early spring to promote new growth.

Helenium is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for aphids, slugs, and powdery mildew. If necessary, treat with organic pest control methods.
