Helenium 'Mardi Gras'
Helenium 'Mardi Gras'
Common Name: Sneezeweed

Helenium 'Mardi Gras' produces a festival of multicolored blooms to jazz up the garden for six to eight weeks in mid to late summer. Yellow petals are lavishly edged with bright orange-red, aging to clear red edged in gold, all surrounding deep chestnut cones. Gorgeous in a pot! Great as a cut flower, its long stems are sturdy and vase life is long. Heleniums are naturally resistant, even toxic, to deer and rabbits. An early pinch back helps promote branching.

Height: 36-40 Inches
Spread: 24-36 Inches
USDA Hardiness Zone: 4-8
