Enjoy stunning seasonal color from summer into fall with the SALUD™ Embers Sneeze Weed or Helenium autumnale. Large daisy-like flowers have a golden-brown cone that adds texture and is surrounded by reddish-orange petals with sunny yellow tips. The petals have an ombre fade that adds even more visual interest to these already intriguing blooms. Medium-green, lance-shaped foliage gives the plant a full and attractive form, even out of bloom.
Use this heat-tolerant perennial in beds, borders, mixed plantings, and containers. While the large, colorful blooms look lovely and lively in a landscape, trim the stems to display these beauties indoors. The long-lasting flowers make a bold solo arrangement or add color to a mix of seasonal blooms. The flowers of the SALUD™ Embers Sneeze Weed attract pollinators, but are largely resistant to deer and rabbits. Grow this sneezeweed in zones 4 through 9.
