Despite the name, Sneezeweed does not present problems to allergy sufferers. The common name is based on the former use of its dried leaves in making snuff, inhaled to cause sneezing that would supposedly rid the body of evil spirits. This perennial is covered in numerous daisy-like, yellow flowers, which provide welcome color in late summer and autumn when many other blossoms have disappeared. Found on moist, open areas along streams & ponds and wet meadows, Sneezeweed prefers wet to medium soils. Grows 2-5 ft.
