I'm very impressed by this helenium variety. I planted a trio a few years ago, unwilling to commit to more until they had proven their hardiness. When they came through a bitter cold winter with no problem, I planted several more. They bloom almost non-stop from mid-summer through to late fall, with dead-heading. I have several other helenium varieties which bloom in a flush and then cease. Short n Sassy is more constant, very pretty, tough, and is too short to flop. Highly recommended.
