  • Organic Helenium «Orange Sneezeweed»

    Here is another hardy perennial that is grown from Helenium seed. Commonly called Mountain Helenium, Orange Sneezeweed or Owl's Claws, this Helenium Hoopesii grows from a taproot, so propagation from flower seeds is recommended.

    Orange Sneezeweed is an erect, clump-forming perennial with basal rosettes of lance-shaped, grey-green leaves that gradually become smaller toward the stem tops. It is a good flower to have in the cutting garden with its branched clusters of rich golden colored flowers which bloom in early summer.

    Mountain Helenium grows approximately 28 - 30 inches tall with daisy-like flowers that measure 3 inches across. Helenium Hoopesii is native to wet meadows, high elevations, and the Sierra Nevada area. It needs full sun to partial shade to do well with consistent moisture. Start Helenium seeds in a prepared seedbed in the late winter or early spring. Lightly cover the flower seed and tamp them into the soil. Keep the seedbed moist. When Helenium seeds are started in early spring, they will bloom the first year.
