Another native volunteer!

Last summer, I noticed a weedy-looking plant growing under the bird feeder. Like I often do, I let it go, wondering if it might turn into something worth keeping. Well, it did! Meet our healthy, happy, robust Mexican hat (Ratibida columnifera). A month or so ago, I tried transplanting both some Mexican hats and prairie verbena, which are both native perennials. But it's just so much more fun (and easier) when they volunteer in our Wildscape.
