Ratibida columnifera Red is a summer-blooming, native wildflower. It has drooping, red petals outlined in golden-yellow. The petals look like a skirt or the brim of a hat surrounding the base of the column-like center.

Red Mexican Hat attracts butterflies. It's a very casual-looking flower, which makes it good choice for the wildflower garden.

Ratibida columnifera blooms the first year from seed, if started early indoors. Drought tolerant. Hardy perennial in zones 3-10.
