Helenium Overview

A genus of annuals, biennials and herbaceous perennials in the Asteraceae family, with an upright, clumping habit and daisy-like flowers in Autumnal shades. They are native to the Americas but are widely cultivated as garden plants for their flowers produced late in the season. Commonly known as sneezeweed, they prefer full sun and a well-drained soil.
