Ratibida pinnata, commonly known as the yellow coneflower, is a perennial wildflower native to the prairies and savannas of central and eastern North America, extending to Ontario in Canada.

It is a member of the Asteraceae family, which includes daisies, sunflowers, and asters. The plant is known for its showy yellow flowers, which bloom in the summer and early fall. The flowers have drooping, yellow ray florets that surround a central cone that is initially green and turns brown as the flower matures.

Here are some key characteristics of Ratibida pinnata:

  • Height: 3-5 feet (0.9-1.5 meters)
  • Spread: 1-2 feet (0.3-0.6 meters)
  • Bloom time: July to September
  • Light requirements: Full sun to partial shade
  • Soil preferences: Well-drained, sandy loam to clay soil
  • Moisture preferences: Drought-tolerant once established

Ratibida pinnata is a valuable addition to native plant gardens, wildflower meadows, and butterfly gardens. It attracts butterflies, bees, and other pollinators. It is also relatively low-maintenance and easy to care for. If you are looking for a colorful and low-maintenance wildflower to add to your garden, Ratibida pinnata is a great option.
