How to grow helenium
Position in a location with full to partial sun that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Mulch plants with compost at the time of planting, and water lightly when the top levels of soil begin to dry. Occasionally helenium can become leggy and floppy if they receive too much shade, if this happens ensure you support them with a stake to get the best results
What is a perennial plant?
Unlike annuals, which only live for one season, perennial plants are a long-term solution to colour in your garden that will come back year after year. Typically, a perennial will only bloom for one season of the year, however there are long-blooming perennials. If grown in the right conditions and treated well a perennial can live between three and five years. For a garden that has colour all round you should plant a mix of annuals and perennials that bloom in different seasons.
