Mexican Hats

This week we have a new plant in bloom.

Our Mexican hats, Ratibida columnifera, have began to open.

A friend of ours gave us a few of these perennial plants last year from a garden bed she was renewing. We had never tried them before.

Right now there’s a little lag between our main spring bloomers and the flowers that thrive in the summer heat. The Mexican hats are filling that gap nicely.
