Helenium autumnale 'Mariachi™ Salsa'

Sneezeweed

Helenium is one of the best perennials for late season color from midsummer into early fall. 'Mariachi Salsa' is a shorter selection that produces masses of deep red flowers. After the first flush of flowers fade, cut plant back by half to encourage a repeat bloom. Great for use as a cut flower. Loved by pollinators!

Sneezeweed Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Helenium will thrive in average, moist, well-drained soil and full sun. Deadhead to promote rebloom.
