Plant Information

18-20" tall x 18-24" wide, Helenium Mariachi ‘Salsa’ PPAF is an underutilized perennial for late summer and fall gardens. Its bright, bold red and orange petals take center stage when the rest of the garden is winding down. Grows best in full sun in moist soils. Hardy in zones 3-9. Water regularly at the time of planting and during any significant period of drought. It will tolerate wet feet, so long as it isn’t sitting in standing water for extended periods of time. After the first flush of flowers fade, cut plant back by half to encourage a repeat bloom. Great for use as a cut flower.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
