Sneezeweed

Helenium Autumnale

The large and numerous daisy-like, yellow flowers of Helenium autumnale can provide welcome color in late summer and autumn when many other blossoms have disappeared. Sneezeweed prefers full to partial sun and wet to wet-medium soils. Despite its common name, it presents no problems for most allergy sufferers. Its pollen is distributed by insects, not wind.
