Helenium autumnale - aka Autumn Sneezeweed, Helen’s Flower. Tall growing perennial, native across most of North America (although not here in Nova Scotia from what I can tell). Masses of bright yellow flowers bloom August/September, attracting every bee in the neighbourhood. Found naturally in moist prairies and meadows and woodland edges. They grow happily anywhere in the garden with at least partial sun. Said to be fairly deer resistant. The name sneezeweed is not because it causes allergies (it doesn’t) but because of a traditional use to grind the dried plant into a snuff which induces sneezing. 100+ seeds
