Prairie Coneflower

Prairie Coneflower (Ratibida columnifera) is one of the most loved wildflowers. Grows well throughout much of the continent under a variety of conditions. The neat, magnificently brilliant yellow 2-4" flowers are borne on stiff 1-3" stems. Plants are easy-to-grow and very hardy. Select sunny location and plant in well drained soil during early spring or fall (recommended in mild climates). For best results, loosen soil with rake or hoe. Mix seeds with a cup of sand or other inert material and broadcast over planting area. Lightly rake seed into soil or cover with peat moss or similar light mulch. Keep soil moist until plants begin to grow. Prairie Coneflower requires little care. Water only as necessary. [TABLE=55]
