Sneezeweed (1 of 1)-10 blogSneezeweed (Helenium) Wildflowers — Image by kenne

I’m still learning to identify southern Arizona wildflowers and one that I always recognize by name is sneezeweed. But, despite its name, sneezeweed does not cause an allergic reaction. Actually, I prefer another one of its names, Helen’s Flower. In Greek mythology, Helenium emerge from the tears of Helen of Troy.
