This plant has an unfortunate common name - sneezeweed - but in fact it's a lovely moist habitat flower for late summer color. Sneezeweed does exceptionally well in sprinkler overspray areas, and the adorable button blooms attract a plethora of native bees and little skipper butterflies. Plant with nettle-leaf giant hyssop and fireweed for a nice range of size, shape, and color.
