Growing Ratibida (Mexican Hat)

Pronunciation: ruh-tib’ih-duh 

The carefree plants in this North American genus are grown primarily for their daisy-like flowers that attract butterflies and other pollinators. Late in the season, birds enjoy the seed heads.

Plant Ratibida in full sun and in average garden soil. Once established, plants are drought tolerant.
