Ratibida pinnata, commonly called Yellow Coneflower, is native to prairies and savannas throughout the midwest. A tall slender plant with rough leaves and stem, yellow coneflower has a cheerful, airy quality - the daisy like flowers have soft yellow rays that flutter in the breeze. The central disk, or cone starts out green and turns brown as it matures. Amazingly durable, this classic prairie flower blooms profusely from early summer to early fall, and survives heat, drought and flooding.  Yellow Coneflower is easy to grow from seed or transplants, in almost any soil.
