About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Ratibida pinnata:
I absolutely LOVE this plant, so much so, that I had to wait 2 years until they were available again. It was healthy when received (3 years ago now) and still healthy - reaching almost 6' feet at its peak - usually around July.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These plants were very small the first year and rather stressed. This year they are great. The heavy rains have helped them grow large and ready to have a lot of blooms.
Wonderful plant! I'd been wanting it for awhile.

About Me Master Gardener
I planted this in the back of my garden, and it compliments everything around it. Easy to maintain, and I have no negatives about this plant. What first attracted me to this particular Ratibida was the relaxed, natural look of the blooms as well as it's hardiness.

Great spot of color in garden!
from Lanesville, IN
I live in southern Indiana where summers are quite humid and hot with upper 90's common. Winters can drop below 0 at times with teens quite common. I have had this plant for many years and it NEVER fails to wow me. Flowers last forever and are bright showstoppers of color. I love this plant! The only con I have is that it has not spread much since planted. It never fails to appear, however.
Can't Take the Heat
By none that is anybodies business
from Austin, TX.
Plant looked good through the spring, but when we had our summer heat it failed. After 42 straight days over 100 with an average of 72 dew point humidity levels it just wilted and died.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
