What Houzz contributors are saying:

Prairie Red Coneflower(Ratibida columnifera pulcherrima)Deep red flowers that dance atop long, slender stems and delicate, airy foliage make prairie red coneflower a terrific addition to a xeric mixed border or wildflower garden. Prairie red coneflower, also known as Mexican hat, is native to a large region of western North America. It's an important nectar source for native bees, butterflies and other insects. Plant it with Western gayfeather (Liatris punctata), wild four o'clock (Mirabilis multiflorus) and Missouri evening primrose (Oenothera macrocarpa). Although it is a short-lived perennial (two or three years), it will reseed readily. Plant it in well-drained clay to sandy soil.Where it will grow: Hardy to -30 degrees Fahrenheit (zones 4 to 10); elevations up to 8,000 feetWater requirement: Very low, but will tolerate moist soilLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 18 to 24 inches tall and wideSeasonal interest: Blooms late June to AugustWhen to plant: Spring or fall
