As a breeze blows by, a brilliant blanket of gold suddenly appears etched in crimson. You can recreate this visual spectacle repeatedly from summer until fall by planting Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed in your yard. While this herbaceous perennial’s name may not so adequately reflect its beauty, its flowers and foliage do. Otherwise known as Helenium autumnale HayDay™ Gold Bicolor, this perennial features delicate, daisy-like florets consisting of dual-colored petals, gold on top and crimson underneath. Along with the slender, oval-shaped verdant leaves, Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed is a perfect choice to provide color, texture, and dimension to any garden. Birds, butterflies, and your neighbors carrying scissors will flock to this perennial! Reaching a maximum height and spread of only 14 to 18 inches, this compact perennial serves borders and small spaces well.

Growing upright, Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed is disease resistant. Deer resistant too, these stems of gold are safe from critters wanting to munch all day and night. Originating from North America, Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed is low maintenance, making it perfect for any busy newbie gardener. And don’t worry about having to hear gesundheit every time you cut one and take it inside; the “Sneezeweed” part of its name simply refers to its ancestors being used as snuff a long, long time ago. 

Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed Care

Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed thrives when planted in moist, loamy soil with a pH of 5.5 to 7.4. A sun-worshiper, this wildflower does best when exposed to six hours of full sun. Possessing average watering needs, one inch of water per week is preferred. As long as the soil is not devoid of most nutrients, fertilize this perennial only once a year. Feed with a balanced fertilizer during early spring.

To encourage bushier growth, pinch Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed during the spring. Hayday™ is a pollinator’s treasure that produces cut-flower quality blooms in late summer. To extend the bloom time, deadhead spent flowers once the blooming season begins. After the flowering season has concluded, cut back the flowers and stems to a few inches.

Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed Spacing

Hayday™ Gold Bicolor Sneezeweed looks beautiful when grown in a bed or a border. Mass plantings of this compact perennial produce the most dramatic effect regarding color. Space these dainty bi-colored beauties 14 to 18 inches apart. If planning to bring this cut flower’s striking beauty inside throughout the autumn, plant other fall bloomers such as sunflowers and sedum. Combined, all three will produce gorgeous bouquets.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
