“Helenium ‘Short and Sassy’ is a compact and vibrant perennial that adds cheerful color to British gardens with its striking blooms and sturdy, upright growth. Growing to a height of 30-45cm, this variety is perfect for borders, rock gardens, or containers where its bold presence can be appreciated up close.

Best planted in full sun or partial shade, ‘Short and Sassy’ thrives in well-drained soil and blooms profusely from midsummer to early autumn. Its daisy-like flowers come in shades of golden-yellow with prominent, contrasting centers, attracting bees and butterflies with their rich nectar and pollen.

Maintenance is straightforward, requiring regular watering during dry spells and deadheading spent blooms to prolong flowering. Pruning is generally unnecessary unless to remove faded foliage or tidy up the plant in early spring. Feeding with a balanced fertilizer in spring helps maintain vigorous growth and supports continuous flowering.

‘Helenium ‘Short and Sassy’ not only enhances garden aesthetics with its vibrant blooms and compact form but also plays a crucial role in supporting pollinators like bees. Its abundant nectar supply makes it a valuable addition to wildlife-friendly gardens, promoting biodiversity and ecological balance.”
