The Mexican hat flower, also known as Ratibida columnifera, is a perennial wildflower native to the prairies of North America. It is known for its distinctive flowers, which resemble a Mexican sombrero. The flowers are typically yellow or red, and they bloom from mid-summer to fall.

Mexican hat flowers are a popular choice for native plant gardens and pollinator gardens. They are also a good choice for xeriscapes, as they are drought-tolerant once established. Mexican hat flowers are relatively easy to grow and require little maintenance. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil.
