Sneezeweed

$4.00

Helenium flower seed is a native American perennial, so you know it is right at home in the sunny garden. The plant can reach 48 inches tall and 18 inches wide, with dozens of flowering stems. It is a magnet for bees, and it needs to be deadheaded to keep blooming. It makes a great cut flower, so take all you want because Helenium will just keep producing more blooms.

Helenium is also known as Common Sneezeweed or Dogtooth Daisy. This name was given because its foliage irritates the skin of some people. Wear gloves the first few times you handle the plant. The flowers, however, are allergen-free, so the cut flowers can be brought indoors for vases without any worry.
