Dakota Gold Sneezeweed
This cheerful plant is native to the southcentral and southeastern United States and has a naturalistic look compared to other annual flowers. Dakota Gold is a slightly more compact version of the Sneezeweed with plentiful golden-yellow blooms all summer long. Bees and butterflies really enjoy the one-inch blooms. Once each flower is spent, the plants will actually deadhead themselves, keeping a fresh and tidy appearance. The bushy thread-like foliage is attractive, too. Don’t worry, they won’t make you sneeze. The name simply refers to a time when Native Americans used dried leaves as an inhalant to unblock sinuses.
