Sneezeweed -- God Bless you!

Doesn't it feel good to sneeze?

This beauty gets its name from its previous use as snuff.

A person who felt the need to clean out the sinuses would take a snort of the dried leaves of this plant and would sneeze.  

This is a member of the aster family. This specimen was found in a swampy area at Coffee Creek and is currently in bloom.
