This showy, easy-to-grow peren­nial, an Amer­i­can na­tive, is also known as Mex­i­can hat plant, thim­ble flower and prairie cone flower. It blooms abun­dantly from July to Oc­to­ber. Graced with large, Mex­i­can hat-shaped blooms in auburn and yel­low, it is ideal for any prairie-style plant­ing scheme. Amer­i­can gar­den­ers say that its fo­liage – deeply cleft leaves near the base – has a strong odour that works as a deer re­pel­lent.
