Autumn Sneezeweed’s name is derived from an old usage of the plant – the ray flowers and leaves were dried and ground for use as snuff, which induces sneezing in people. It is native to the eastern and central United States and is found in moist areas along streams and ponds as well as in moist meadows and prairies. The abundant yellow flowers have rounded, dome-like centers. This species is a good colonizer and blooms in late summer and fall. Recommended for rain gardens and bioswales as well as moist meadow and prairie plantings. It’s great for pollinator mixes as the flowers are visited by honey bees and many species of wild bees.
