Ratibida (Mexican hat)


.............. do they bloom the first year from a winter sowing?

Thanks, Anne-Marie

Well.. I have done some research on the internet... NO for Mexican Hat, YES for Catananche (hopefully, anyway). I will then transplant my catananche seedlings in the flower bed tomorrow.

Hi Anne Marie,
I WS Mexican Hat last year and it bloomed. I also heard that it readily re-seeds, although I haven't seen any come up yet. Barb
