Plant A Day – new location


I’ve decided to move my Plant A Day blog to Blogger since it has some features that I was looking for and WordPress doesn’t have them.  It will provide a list of all of the posts along the side, and it has a search function, so you could look up a plant if you want.

So, go to to continue watching my progress!

Plant A Day – Upright Prairie Coneflower

Upright Prairie Coneflower Ratibida columnifera

There are two representatives of the Ratibida genus in Indiana, this and Pinnate Prairie Coneflower (Ratibida pinnata), also known as Gray-headed Coneflower.

This species is more of a western plains plant and is rarely found in Indiana.  It is quite showy and occasionally ends up in prairie restorations in Indiana, but probably shouldn’t be.
