Helenium autumnale – Sneezeweed
A sun loving, easy to grow Missouri native, Sneezeweed, Helenium autumnale, lights up the garden with its bright yellow, distinctive flowers. In full bloom its flowers create a mound of brilliant color. Blooming begins in late summer and continues until frost.
Sneezeweed makes a stunning show in borders, meadows, cottage gardens or in naturalized areas. Sneezeweed prefers full sun and average to rich, moist soil. Tolerant of wet soil. Plants grow 3-5′, but can be kept shorter with pinching.
Plant in full sun to light shade. Cutting plants back in early June will encourage more branching and more flowers. Deadheading spent blossoms will encourage more flowers. Plants will require watering during dry spells.
