Ratibida pinnata - Grey-Headed Coneflower

This plant seldom, if ever, grows naturally outside a prairie or former prairie area. It can be easily grown in gardens and prairie restorations and creations.

In autumn, its seedhead can be crushed in hand to reveal a wonderful aromatic fragrance.

A number of seed-eating birds consume the seeds when the plant matures in late September and into October.

This plant is a long lived perennial with deep roots that allow the plant to thrive even in severe drought.

Mass plantings in prairie and native plant landscapes provide a beautiful wash of color.
