Bigelow's Sneezeweed

7/23/08 Crane Flat
Helenium bigelovii

Sunflower Family

The name seems to come from the early settlers' use of powdered, dried flowers to induce sneezing to help clear head colds.

Moist meadow areas, 3000-8000 feet.
June to August.

Very interested in some of the different wildflowers you find like the corn lily and sneezeweed.
