    Those are really pretty flowers Omie! I'll have to see if I can find some seeds for those.

    Thanks folks. :)
    The bees do seem to like these flowers pretty well. But not quite as much as they like the Russian sage, Catmint, and Anise hyssop. But this Sneezeweed (also known as Helen's flower or Helenium) is just SO pretty I could not resist getting it for my garden- it combines with the purple and blue flowers so well!

    This flower comes in many color varieties from cream to yellow to orange to red:
