Also known as Mexican Hat.

Prairie Coneflower is a delightful Texas native wildflower. Its perennial nature combined with cheerful orange and yellow bloom makes for a lovely addition to any sunny garden.  It is drought tolerant and does not require a lot of space.

Prairie Coneflower looks best when planted en masse or mixed with other perennials.  It mixes well with other perennials and works well in perennial borders, backyard prairie patches, pollinator gardens and generally speaking any sunny garden space is not over-irrigated.
