  1. Yes to the comments! Plus,

    not knowing much about flowers, I found two interesting bits – (1) this one is named after Helen of Troy; (2). “A number of these species have the common name sneezeweed. . .”!!

    BUT, not to worry, the name is “. . . based on the former use of their dried leaves in making snuff. It was inhaled to cause sneezing that would supposedly rid the body of evil spirits.” (wiki)

    Strange, how we try to use beauty.
