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 4cm or 5cm plugs, depending on availability. Please note that these plants are only available on a seasonal basis. The nursery grows new stock from autumn to early spring, so we do not deliver over this period.
