Helenium autumnale Mariachi™ Sombrero is an attractive and vibrant dwarf cultivar of sneezeweed in the Mariachi line of Heleniums named for their festive flair. Growing to only 18-20" tall in full sun and well-drained fertile soils, Sombrero sneezeweed produces profuse, bright yellow daisy-like blooms from late summer into the fall in a much smaller package than the parent species. Flowers are highly attractive to pollinators, and Sombrero's lemony blooms have the added benefit of drought tolerance which makes them perfect for smaller spaces, rock gardens, and container plantings when paired with nature dwarf stature.
Best planted in pollinator gardens and naturalized meadows, but no stranger to raised beds and accent pots, Helenium autumnale Mariachi™ Sombrero is generally avoided by deer, and long-lasting blooms make for great cut flowers, especially when few other perennials are still in bloom. Although the plant's name of sneezeweed implies that it might trigger pollen allergies, the plant is pollinated by bees and butterflies and doesn't present any additional allergy risk.
