  • Full sun to light shade
  • 60” tall, 18” to 24” wide

New to me, grown from seeds from the Ottawa Wildflower Seed Library and Prairie Moon Nursery https://www.prairiemoon.com/ratibida-pinnata-yellow-coneflower-prairie-moon-nursery.html 

This tall, narrow species is a classic in many prairie settings. They are very showy and thrive in mixed meadows and garden settings alongside prairie grasses, Wild Bergamot and Anise Hyssop as well as various Aster, Goldenrod and Liatris species.

I'm in the process of adding species that I expect to offer this spring to the listings since they are starting to germinate and I'm starting to get an idea of which will be available in abundant quantities.

Since the list is much longer this year I've added several categories to help narrow down your options based on a variety of criteria.
