Sneezeweed is an easy to grow, late season winner! The tall bushy plants are filled with flowers that look like small button-head sunflowers.  Wide native range around Canada/US. Native to Québec. Bees love it! Butterflies love it. And it looks fantastic with the purples of your New England Asters. 

A note about the name: Autumn Sneezeweed is another one of the best plants with a underserved bad reputation. It was, in the olden days, often confused with ragweed. It is non-allergenic, long blooming, tall and a happy yellow as the days are getting shorter. 

That said, a kid recently informed me that name "Sneezeweed" makes perfect sense. They said the flowers look like someone sneezed on them and blew all the petals backwards. Voila. So true. Smart kid!
