Flowers Not To Frown Upon During Allergy Season

Post image for Flowers Not To Frown Upon During Allergy Season

by Yoli Ouiya on April 3, 2013

Like millions of people in the world, I too have suffered from the unfortunate immune system’s reaction to nature blooming also known as seasonal allergies. From itch eyes and throats, hives and rashes, I’ve experienced it all in varying degrees. Making adjustments to my diet and taking certain supplements and herbs/teas have helped much. If you like flowers, like I do, and you have seasonal allergies, most flowers scare you at the potential of these floral beauties setting off a sneezing attach. But do not fret my eco-friends, thanks to WebMD1, here are a list of plants that produce little to no airborne pollen.


Begonia cactus chenille clematisBegonia, Cactus, Chenille, Clematis.

columbine crocus daffodil dusty millerColumbine, Crocus, Daffodil, Dusty Miller.

geranium hosta impatiens irisGeranium, Hosta, Impatiens, Iris.

lily pansy periwinkle petuniaLily, Pansy, Periwinkle, Petunia.

phlox rose salvia snapdragonPhlox, Rose, Salvia, Snapdragon.

thrift tulip verbena zinniaThrift, Tulip, Verbena, Zinnia.

Hypoallergenic sunflower seeds

All these grow 5 to 6 feet tall — and the pollen is too heavy to be spread easily.

Apricot Twist (apricot with gold center), Infrared Mix (dark crimson, ruby, golden-reds), The Joker (showy red-and-yellow double blooms), Pro-Cut Bicolor (stunning mahogany and yellow with black centers).

Azalea, boxwood (if clipped often), hibiscus, hydrangea, viburnum.

Apple, cherry, Chinese fan palm (female), fern pine (female), dogwood, English holly (female), Bradford pear, crepe myrtle, hardy rubber tree, magnolia, pear, plum, red maple (female).

St. Augustine.
