Sneezeweed 💛

The grounds of our park in Oklahoma are covered with this lovely little yellow wildflower. I love learning how wildflowers get their names. This one was especially interesting.

“As the species name implies, Sneezeweed flowers in late summer or fall. The common name is based on the former use of its dried leaves in making snuff, inhaled to cause sneezing that would supposedly rid the body of evil spirits.”
