Mexican Hat Flower 24-30” Hardy Perennial Wildflower
This is a native American Wildflower and is very hardy surviving well into Zone 3. May be sown indoors 4-6 weeks before spring ¼” deep at 65 degrees or direct seeded. Transplants well. Space 12" Should have full direct sun and does very well in hot, dry locations. This is a native wildflower of New Mexico. Fun and hearty. I especially love the all yellow variety. Blooms the first year. Should be divided or thinned out every few years to maintain vigor. Does not require rich soil. Likes wild, dry deserts or mountain roadsides. Blooms mid-summer into fall and puts on a beautiful show!. Butterflies and bees are attracted to this plant as well.
