Native to the mid-west, Prairie Coneflower is an easy to grow drought tolerant plant with fine medium grey-green foliage. The flowers feature black,
cone-shaped heads with drooping bright red and yellow petals resembling a 'sombrero', hence the other common name of Ratibida columnifera is "Mexican Hat".
