Mexican Hat coneflower (Ratibida columnifera) is a striking, colorful perennial that is native throughout North America. I live in the desert of the western US and grow it with ease. It is a low-water flower so it helps you save money on watering expenses. I have won ribbons at the county fair several years in a row for this simple, unique beauty!


One little seed goes a long way! These seeds grow into flower-covered shrubs that can stretch 2 feet across and 3 feet tall. They are covered with gorgeous stalks of "Mexican Hats" - seed-covered tops with beautiful red-gold petals below that bloom from June through September. The flowers hold up beautifully in vases and make this a perfect cut-garden flower.


Bees absolutely love them! This is a hardy perennial - trim it back each fall and watch it grow just and big and beautiful next spring. It grows big and well here, so I divide mine each fall into separate shrubs, transplanting throughout the yard and sharing with friends. I've been growing this variety for several years, dividing my shrub each year. This packet of seeds will be enough to cover your yard in gorgeous Mexican Hats!
