I have tried 2 years in a row for some! Never got any for some strange reason, I am trying again this year...

Yes! Looking good!
Can't wait to see mine this year; maybe I'll get 1st year blooms too :)
I wintersowed some Helenium-red from seed received in trade on 2/16 and germination started on 4/5; to date I have about 25 tiny little seedlings! I guess I'll either be thinning that container out or separating them out for friends :)
Can't really tell how tall they got for you?

Vera, these grew about 24 inches tall, spread 12-18". They are in part sun. I do not know the variety as I got them at a plant swap. Both plants were growing in the same styrofoam cup.

RE: Helenium

I have some tiny sprouts of these. Mine are
going to be yellow. I think I am going to like these.
I like the red/orange of your top picture.

I just stuck in some tiny seedlings. Hope mine look
this good later.

My first year plants were shorter and a bit scrawny. The photos are of the second year.
