Helenium autumnale 'Bandera' PP #27,397
|Description||Vibrant flowers on upright stems wave enthusiastically above a very compact and densely branched mound of green foliage.

An herbaceous perennial.|

|Blooms||Late Summer into Fall|
|Mature Size||Moderately vigorous; reaches 12 to 15 in. tall, 15 to 18 in. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||This American native is perfectly at home in a meadow or prairie garden or open woodland in areas where regular moisture abounds. Thrives along a sunny stream bed or pond's edge. A valuable late season bloomer for the traditional perennial border.|
|Companion Plants||Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Avens (Geum); Gayfeather (Liatris); Aster (Aster); Bee Balm (Monarda); Joe-Pye Weed (Eupatorium)|
|Care||Provide organically rich, moist but well-drained soil. Water regularly in first growing season to establish root system. Once established, prefers regular moisture, even tolerating wet soils; does not tolerate dry soils. Fertilize only lightly. Remove spent flowers to encourage continued bloom. Hard prune by 1/2 after bloom period.|
|Lore||Helenium is a native wildflower from the Americas, found around damp woodland areas, alongside streams and ponds, and in moist meadow lands and prairies, with regular moisture. They have a shallow root system and will not thrive with periodic dry spells. The species H. autumnale refers to a late summer through fall bloom period, later than others of its genus. Despite its name, sneezeweed is not a common source of seasonal allergies.|
