Ratibida columnifera 'Red Midget'

Mexican hat plant

Finely cut foliage
Red and yellow flowers
Mounding habit
Excels in dry conditions

Fun, unique flowers dance above mounds of fine green foliage from June until frost. The blooms feature long, prominent cones that give way to wide, reflexed petals in shades of deep reddish-brown, orange, and yellow. This plant is by seed, so there will be variation in the red/yellow ratio in the flowers. A native prairie plant, this dwarf variety of the species performs exceptionally well in hot and dry conditions.
