Native North American perennial. Blooms August to October. Attracts butterflies.
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.
