Ratibida are native prairie plants. Drought resistant. Open airy-branching habit. Blooms late summer into fall. Best planted in masses or groups in a border or meadow. Crushed seeds have an anise scent.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Full sun and well-drained medium to dry soil is needed for Ratibida. Clay soils may need amendments to grow successfully. Seldom needs division but young plants can be divided in spring before they get too woody. Remove flowers when the petals drop or leave seed heads for the birds. Will self sow.
