Waltraut Helenium Description

Add an explosion of bold colour
In midsummer, masses of deep orange-and-red blooms burst open, splashing the landscape with bold, warm colours and inviting butterflies and pollinators to visit. These showy, disc-shaped, non-drooping flowers are held on sturdy stems up to 40" tall and make quite a statement in back borders—or indoors as cut flowers. Waltraut Helenium is a sun-loving perennials that will bloom until frost. Native to North and Central America, heleniums, also called sneezewood, are treasured for their splashy colours and ease of care. While pollinators love them, deer tend to pass them by.
