Sneezeweed by Teri DC
Sneezeweed, a photo by Teri DC on Flickr.
This daisy-like bloom is called 'Sneezeweed' and the scientific name is 'Helenium Autumnal'. I found it in my step-daughter's garden and that's when I realized I have some in my garden and never knew that was it's name.


  1. Teri, this is wonderful! The detail would qualify it to be a field guide illustration.

  2. Thanks so much Sherry and Kate.

  3. I really really like your pen and ink drawings. This one is great! I agree with Kate...it could easily be in a field guide.

  4. Beautifully done, I remember painting my sneezeweed last year, I loved them and sadly they did not return this year, I think they are in too much shade now with the yard growing up! Love your sketch!

  5. Beautiful, Teri. Your careful line work has gotten so good.
