Mountain helenium is a foot or so perennial herb with yellow daisy-like flowers 3 inches across native to wet meadows, high elevations, Sierra Nevada. It needs part-shade to sun, regular water. Owlsclaws will take a great deal of water if needed, it does fine in a 'normal' garden. Great back east or in the north. I think this plant could live in Siberia if it had the water. (Syn. Dugaldia hoopesii, Hymenoxys hoopsii)

Helenium hoopesii tolerates seasonal flooding.
