Mexican Hat - an ounce of seeds = a bazillion seeds!

Yesterday, I planted almost an ounce of Mexican Hat (Ratibida columnifera) wildflower seeds.

Note to self: an ounce of these seeds is enough to cover the entire state of Arizona. Added bonus--1/10 of an inch of rain fell last night.

With enough monsoon rainfall, these should bloom in the summer, and they attract bees and butterflies. We shall see next year if some of them make it!
