Helenium are native to the North American edges of woods, low meadows, and moist prairies, helenium will thrive in average to rich, moist, well-drained soil; intolerant of dry soils.

Helenium produces shades of brown, orange, red, and yellow flowers with dark centers from late summer into fall. Cut back plants in late spring for a sturdy, compact habit and to encourage branching plus more flowers. Deadhead to promote rebloom. Divide every 3 to 4 years to maintain vigor.

Excellent as a border plant, cut flowers, and mass plantings. Helenium are grown commercially as cut flowers because their strong, tall stems are ideal for cutting. Attracts butterflies.
