Helenium autumnale  


This tall, stunning plant has wing-like leaves that extend down to the base of the stalk. The flowers are vibrant yellow, resembling daisies and are excellent for cutting. The common name is derived because historically the dried herb has been used to produce snuff, and is not a reference to hay fever. Provides food for birds and butterflies. Toxic to cattle.
