Helen’s flower (sneezeweed) is an attractive perennial for summer and autumn borders. Newer cultivars are selected for extended blooming time or different colour play. Plants are usually tall so anything shorter than one meter tends to be called dwarf or at least compact. Just like this beauty from Germany from 1989 - its name is Rubinzwerg (Ruby Dwarf).

Rubinzwerg is a shorter sneezeweed variety making stems of only some 80 cm tall that resist wind and rain. Flowers are deep ruby red and fade to coppery orange. Blooming begins already in late July and continues until October. Leaves are soft green, lanceolate, and appear along the stems as well as near the ground.

Sneezeweed will grow in almost soil type but prefers fertile, reasonably drained but constantly moist soil and full sun. It hates drought. It is recommended to divide every 2-4 years to encourage new roots and young plants. All parts of the plant may cause severe discomfort if eaten. Fully hardy to about -34°C (USDA zone 4).
