Purple-headed Sneezeweed

Helenium flexuosum


3 lobed yellow ray flowers, plant is approximately 3 feet tall, dark purple-maroon colored disc, with grooved slightly hairy stem.


Found growing on the roadside of an old open field that is mowed twice per year.


Sadly, the day after this photo was taken, this plant was mowed down. I'm very happy to have seen it in its glory, but sad it is now chopped down.
