Heliopsis General Information:

Heliopsis are long blooming and care free. Great in mass plantings. Simply covered in cheery blooms on sturdy, well-branched plants. Deadheading will prolong the display even longer.

Heliopsis Plant Care:

No special care needed. Does not like to be dry for extended periods. Can be divided every 4 years or so in spring or fall. If height control is needed, can be cut back by one-half in late spring before flowering. Remove seed heads to avoid overabundance of volunteer plants.
