Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener

HELENIUM 'Chelsey' PP16322
The red and yellow flushed daisies of ‘Chelsey’ will add vibrant color to the summer and fall garden. This hybrid sneezeweed was developed in the Netherlands and is characterized by its large colorful flowers, upright to spreading habit and good garden performance.
Dark green, lance-shaped leaves provide a nice backdrop for the late season blooms of sneezeweed. Each colorful daisy has a deep red center surrounded by dark orange-red petals with streaks of yellow. The flowers attract both bees and butterflies and are followed by dark brown seedheads that provide seed to hungry songbirds. 'Chelsey' will bloom over a longer period if its spent flowers are removed.
Plant sneezeweed in full sun for best form and flowering. It will withstand a wide range of soil types as long as they have good drainage. The rich flowers of 'Chelsey' add warmth to perennial or wildflower gardens. It mingles nicely with other warm colored perennials and ornamental grasses and its pretty flowers are long-lasting when cut for arrangements.
