|Botanical Pronunciation||hel-EE-nee-um aw-tum-NAH-lee|
|Lore||Helenium is a native wildflower from the Americas, found around damp woodland areas, alongside streams and ponds, and in moist meadow lands and prairies, with regular moisture. They have a shallow root system and will not thrive with periodic dry spells. The species H. autumnale refers to a late summer through fall bloom period, later than others of its genus. Despite its name, sneezeweed is not a common source of seasonal allergies.|
