Orange Sneezeweed does NOT induce sneezing! It is a tall, large-flowered species of wet subalpine meadows above 10,000 feet. It is easy to grow and produces copious quantities of viable seed. If it is grown on lean, dry soil, it will be short in stature and its flowers willl be correspondingly small. When grown in moist, humus-rich soil, Orange Sneezeweed makes a bold, colorful statement.
