Sneezeweed Golden Yellow (Helenium Hoopesii) 150 seeds (#2192)
About the product
A native North American wildflower, this is also known as Western Sneezeweed. Despite the name, these do not cause allergies. Plants form a low mound of leathery leaves, bearing upright branching heads of golden-yellow daisies, with an orange eye. Excellent as a cut flower.
Appreciates a moist, sunny site. Well suited to naturalizing in a sunny meadow situation, but neat enough to include in the border. Removing faded flowers regularly will greatly increase the blooming time. Attractive to butterflies.
