We usually ship perennials to you in their dormant state, bare roots, usually without leaves, in bags of loose peat moss. They may have some shoots beginning to grow. It is very important to plant these dormant perennials as soon as possible after you receive them. If it is absolutely necessary to store them for a short time before planting them, open the cartons and any plastic that is around the roots. If the roots appear dry, soak them for a few hours in warm water. Thereafter store in slightly moist peat moss in a cold, but not freezing location until you can plant. They can also be placed in pots of soil if planting will be delayed for more than 2 weeks. Use any packaged, peat-based potting soil and pots with drainage holes.
Space 18-24" apart, with the growing tips just under the soil surface.
Grow in average to poor soil that is well drained. It has very few requirements and adapts well to dry locations once established. Overly rich soils can cause plants to stretch and become top heavy. Pruning early in the season will reduce the need to stake but the flowering will be delayed.
Helenium form underground rhizomes so will spread relatively quickly but can easily be divided to control the spreading. It is best to divide in spring or fall. Grows 3-4’ tall.
