Yellow Prairie Coneflower


Yellow Prairie Coneflower

Ratibida columnifera
One recent summer, I was enticed into a field by a yellow fluttering of dancing flowers on erect 1–3' slender stems. As I approached, I could see that the yellow petals merely skirted around a protruding cylindrical chocolate-brown center disk. One of its common names Mexican Hat evokes a tall sombrero and the lively and colorful Mexican Hat Dance. Prairie grasslands native likes full sun, blooms May through August, undaunted by drought. Perennial, Zones 3-9. ~1,830 seeds/g.
