Originating from N. America.
The floral display is supported by perennial, stiffly upright stems bearing grey-green pointed oval leaves and is perfect for prairie, coastal and exotic-style gardens, especially when planted in drifts. Its dried leaves are believed to have been used to produce snuff, hence its common name, Sneezeweed.
Loud and hot drifts of shuttlecock shaped blooms have a fantastic protruding dome of brown-coloured disc florets, contrasting neatly with the fiery outer ring of petals, which have a crazy arrangement of orange and yellow colours, with no two blooms being the same. They radiate from the inner disc with a blunt sometimes crimped outer edge, forming a circular bloom, like the spokes of a wheel.
Easy to grow in any free draining soil in full sun.
Mature height and spread after 1 – 2 years 1m x 50cm
