Helenium puberulum

Waggley balls on sticks! Tough and easy, some would say this California native is small on petals, but I say it’s big on balls - you should see it in full bloom May thru August! It really puts on a show! “Lollipop” heads with itty-bitty golden yellow collars are borne in multitudes on naked, slender, branching silvery stems. Reliably perennial, plant them at the front of bed or in a container for pronounced playfulness. Not fussy about soil – but more blooms with compost for sure. Top-o-the-line butterfly attractor! Cool dried flowers. Easily self-sows! Super versatile, it doesn’t mind drought or moist conditions. To 30” high and 2’ wide.
