SNEEZEWEED

There’s no need to be worried about the name, as sneezeweed definitely won’t make you sneeze. In past times, the dried leaves of this colorful plant were once used to stop an unfortunate bout of sneezing.

Despite its name, sneezeweed or helenium is not a weed at all but a perennial daisy from the Asteraceae family. If you want to set your eyes on its gorgeous blooms, look out around summer to late fall.

How to Grow Helenium from Seed

If you choose seed starting to get a large colony of helenium growing quickly, sprinkle the seeds liberally on moist ground but don't cover the seeds because they require light to trigger germination. Plants will germinate in about two weeks at room temperature.

Overwintering

After the first frost, spread a thick layer (about 6 inches) of hay or mulch over your helenium bed. In the spring, as soon as the frost danger has passed, remove the insulating layer.
