Purple-Head Sneezeweed

Helenium flexuosum

The very dark-colored disk distinguishes Purple-Head Sneezeweed from other species of sneezeweed which have yellow-green disks. On all sneezeweeds, the yellow ray petals have three lobes which distinguish sneezeweeds from Black-eyed Susan and other yellow coneflowers.

Occurs along pond margins and streambanks, in ditches, wet meadows, wet pastures and on moist areas of glades.
