Ratibida columnifera f. pulcherrima ‘Red Midget’ (P-1582)
Aptly named, the lax yellow-edged mahogany-red petals encompass distinctive black cones and look like the drooping brims of sombrero hats. Upright, stiff 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.
