Common Sneezeweed is not the most appealing name, but this beauty is a lovely choice for a butterfly garden or any area needing bright, bold color. Its yellow petals have feathery, scalloped ends and surround a large cone. This plant is a late bloomer, with flowers opening in the late summer or early fall, providing color at the season's end. Butterflies and other pollinators are drawn to the flowers.

Helenium autumnale is native to North America, so once it settles in, it will require very little care to thrive. Feature Common Sneezeweed in beds, borders, or butterfly gardens. The Common Sneezeweed creates a cottage vibe and supports the local ecosystem. Green, lanced-shaped foliage creates visual interest and color throughout the growing season.

Common Sneezeweed Care

Common Sneezeweed needs a sunny area with at least 6 hours of sunlight. The soil should be moist and well drained with a pH on the acidic side. This plant has medium moisture needs, so water weekly or when the top few inches of soil are dry. Apply a layer of organic mulch to keep the soil damp. Feed Common Sneezeweed with a balanced fertilizer once during the spring, and that will support the plant throughout the growing season.

Remove faded flowers to encourage more blooms. Cut the stems back to the foliage level after the flowers fade to maintain a neat and compact look. Common Sneezeweed can be propagated through division during the spring or fall every few years.

Common Sneezeweed Spacing

Common Sneezeweed is a clump-forming, upright plant that will reach 3 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide. Create a dense planting by spacing plants 3 feet apart so air can circulate around the foliage.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
