Pollen Allergy - Knowledgebase Question

I've heard that if you have allergies, and like black eyed susans, golden shrub daisies are a good substitue. I can't find these daisies anywhere. Is there a list or a book of plants to substitute if you have allergies?

I just visited this website for more information on pollen allergies:

http://www.niaid.nih.gov/publi...

and there discovered that most showy flowers do not produce pollen that is allergenic. It's the nondescript flowers of grasses, trees, and weeds that cause most of the trouble. Mold spores are another common environmental allergen.

However, if you have tested positive for an allergy specifically to daisy pollen, that's another story. If you have, please reenter your question on this Q&A page, and we'll delve further to see if we can find daisies that will work for you. Gezundheit!
