Virginia Sneezeweed

The globally endangered Virginia sneezeweed (Helenium virginicum), known to exist in just two Virginia counties, thrives in the dolomite soil of Kennedy Mountain Meadow. Blooms with numerous yellow petals appear in late summer. The rare, herbaceous member of the sunflower family gets its name sneezeweed honestly. Allergy sufferers may be glad the plant is not as common as ragweed and plantain.
