Heleniums (SNEEZEWEED) are a very easy care perennials. I've had mine in the garden for three years and really don't do much to them. I have located them in the back part of my largest mixed border. There are dwarf kinds but mine is a standard height (about 4 feet). The one note of caution is to watch for it when it first comes up in the garden. It really looks like a weed when it breaks the ground and can be mistakenly pulled. Make sure you give them plenty of sun and great drainage. They bloom about 8 to 10 weeks and make a great cut flower.
