Mardi Gras Sneezeweed Growing and Maintenance Tips

Thrives in a fertile, moist soil, in full sun. To maintain compact habit and more flower count, it is recommended pruning helenium back to half by mid-June. Staking may be required if planted in shadier sites. Divide every 2-3 years to maintain flower production.
