California Spring Trials 2013 Preview: New Perennial Introductions

Helenium ‘Short ‘n’ Sassy’ from Skagit

Bright flowers glow with sunny color on an upright and compact plant. The orange and gold blooms have a chocolate brown center cone that attract attention in the late-summer garden.

At 12 to 18 inches tall, ‘Short ’n’ Sassy’ is a shorter version of the stately helenium. It is long blooming and starts earlier than most of its type. Not fussy about soil types, except the extremes, it is easy to grow in beds, borders and even containers.
