Helen’s Flower got lots of ohhs and ahhs at the nursery this year. Everyone wanted to know what plant had that amazing yellow flower. Helen’s Flower is a late blooming plant with large yellow blossoms. It not only blooms for a long time but is covered with blossoms. This makes it an extraordinary plant for fall color and incredible for pollinators late in the season.


Helen’s Flower prefers moist to wet soil and full to part-sun. You can keep it shorter than its usual 3 to 4 feet by cutting it in half in mid-June. The alternate lance shaped leaves are deep green and look lovely into the fall. The common name “sneezeweed” is inaccurate as the plant does not cause sneezing or allergies.


Good Companions are Joe Pye, Swamp Milkweed, Marsh Fern, White Turtlehead, Lobelia and Blue Flag Iris.
