Dwarf Helenium grows best in full sun and tolerates a wide range of soil types. It's ideal for garden beds and borders, hanging baskets, pots, and the rock garden because of its short stature and lack of need for deadheading. Native wildflower meadows, reclamation blends, and pollinator restoration mixes are some of the other applications. Sweat-bees and native wasps are common visitors of these flowers.
