Item #: HEL01F
  • Seed Envelope   ($3.00)

Plant with confidence, Sneezeweed will not make you sneeze. It does, however, produce a beautiful yellow bloom that has a distinct round center.

Sneezeweed is also known as Helen's flower, based on the legend that the flowers grew in place of Helen of Troy's tears that touched the ground. It is native to almost all of the states in the U.S. If you're looking for a late summer pop of color that pollinators will love, pair this with a purple flower such as New England Aster or Great Lobelia.

Call it what you want to, Sneezeweed is a cheery, perennial wildflower that likes full sun and mesic to wet soils. Plant it in rain gardens, mulch beds and areas you want to become low maintenance. These flowers are often deer resistant.


Seed Envelopes contain approximately 0.02 ounces of seed and cover about 5 to 10 square feet.
