Ratibida columnifera f. pulcherrima Red Midget

July – early October.

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.

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