Heleniums bring a touch of sunshine to the garden in late summer. Their daisy-like flowers are excellent for cutting and are very attractive to bees. 'Sonnnenwunder' has lemon-yellow blooms which have pale yellow centres. At 180cm (6ft) tall, it is at home at the back of the border. Remove the dead flowers to encourage more to follow. plants will not reach their final height until their second year. To restrict their size, cut back to about 30cm (1ft) tall in May. This not only reduces their final height but will also delay flowering by a week or two. To propagate, divide plants in spring. Dividing in autumn often fails as the small plants produced die during the winter.
