Ratibida columnifera var pulcherrima - Mexican Hat

This is a listing for a pack of 250 seeds.

Ratibida columnifera v pulcherrima, commonly known as Mexican Hat, is a species of flowering plant in the daisy family, Asteraceae, that is native to much of North America. It inhabits prairies, plains, roadsides, and disturbed areas from southern Canada through most of the United States to northern Mexico. The plant grows up to 120cm tall and is perennial with a taproot and short, persistent stem base with several stems branching from the base, with flat, stiff, short hairs. The leaves are arranged alternately and are lance-shaped, deeply pinnately cut into 5-9 segments, the segments linear or lance-shaped, toothless or nearly so, with flat, short, stiff hairs. The flowers are yellow, with a red splash, with 3-7 rays, which are 15-45 mm long, relatively very broad, spreading or bent down, around a dark, column-shaped disk, mostly 15-40 mm long and about 1/4-1/2 as wide. Several flower heads are carried on long stalks.   There are several sub-species and forms of this plant, this listing is for the yellow/red flowered variety.

Tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, this species is suitable for Zones 3 - 9.  Ideally suited for a wildlife or wildflower garden, this plant is extremely attractive to both butterflies and birds.  It will also add charm to a cottage garden planting with the coneflowers waving gently in any breeze.
