Maintenance Notes
Removing spent blooms may help encourage additional blooming. Winter mulch can reduce heaving that can occur with perennials from the freeze/thaw cycles of winter. Tuscan Gold is heat tolerant and will tolerate somewhat dry soils. While deadheading may encourage additional blooming it isn't strictly necessary for a long bloom season. The breakthrough here is an easy flowering Heliopsis with a shorter plant size, outstanding garden performance and disease resistance. A long known great garden plant with good manners and a long flowering season, also makes a great cut flower! An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.
