Botanical Pronunciationhel-EE-nee-um aw-tum-NAH-lee
LoreHelenium 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.
Average Size at MaturityModerately vigorous; reaches 12 to 15 in. tall, 15 to 18 in. wide.
Bloom TimeLate Summer into Fall
Design IdeasThis American native is perfectly at home in a meadow or prairie garden or open woodland in areas where regular moisture abounds. Thrives along a sunny stream bed or pond's edge. A valuable late season bloomer for the traditional perennial border.
