Why sneezewort? Apparently it gives off a funny smell, which will make you sneeze if it's inserted up your nose! This has led to a number of herbal applications, some mentioned in Harry Potter. It's a very pretty little plant, only growing to 30cm, although the flowers look like its taller and more common relative, Yarrow. It tends to prefer heavier wet soils, and is found in a variety of situations. Sneezewort has a number of cultivars, often used for cut flowers. We offer sneezewort as either bare root or in generous 110cc size plugs, depending on availability.
