This sunny bright, summer-blooming perennial is somewhat surprising, as it looks as though it could handle dry soil and become drought-tolerant. Sneezeweed, as 'Salud Embers' Helenium is commonly known, actually prefers moister soil, and can bring warm colors to those problematic wet spots in the garden. Only about a foot tall and wide, 'Salud Embers' does well in container planters and hanging baskets as well, blooming from mid-summer up until fall. Oddly enough, helenium tends to get leggy if overfertilized, but a gentle cut-back in late spring/early summer before blooms appear will keep the plant compact and tidy.
