Description

With a name like Sneezeweed its hard to become a best selling garden plant, but don’t despair, it won’t make you sneeze. This clump forming plant’s unfortunate name came from its medicinal use by native North Americans as the crushed dried petals were used to combat hayfever. Sneezeweed is a native North American plant that prefers open fully sunny sites with moist to wet soil conditions. It offers an abundance of yellow reflexed flowers with yellowish-green centres. These strong-stemmed 2.5-5 cm (1-2″) wide flowers are excellent for bouquets. A late summer through early fall bloomer that grows between 60-150 cm (2-5′) in height. Perennial hardy to Zone 3. While many bees and other pollinators are attracted to this plant, please note that Sneezeweed is poisonous if consumed. Packet $1.99. 5g $9.95. 25g $29.40.

How to Grow

550 seeds/gram Sow seed indoors in a soil-less mix in February or March. Barely cover seed and keep at 18 C (68 F) for the 10-15 day germination period. After germination, grow on under lights at the same temperature then harden off and transplant to the garden in a sunny spot with moist to wet soil. Direct sow outdoors starting in mid-May. Thin seedlings to 30 cm (12″) apart in formal gardens. Plants can be cut back by half in early to mid June. This tends to encourage branching which in turn leads to more flowers and reduces the need for plant support.
