This is one of the few remaining Prairie Coneflower aka (Ratibida columnifera) or Mexican Hat Dance plants, at least that I've seen now that fall is upon us. What I didn't know is they are the are also a member of the Aster Family. These tall beauties thrive in our dry prairie regions.
So I say we bring out the castanets and celebrate Today's Flowers with a flourish!
