Ratibida columnifera f. pulcherrima ‘Red Midget’ full sun

Aptly named, the lax yellow-edged mahogany-red petals encompass distinctive black cones and look like the drooping brims of sombrero hats. Stiff, upright hairy stems are branching and clothed by deeply cut leaves, while bolstering a gazillion flame-hued flowers that entice butterflies and enhance floral arrangements. This drought tolerant Great Plains toughie lends festive accents to other easy-care perennials and grasses in a border or a natural-style planting.

Blooms July – early October.

Size: 18"–20" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
