  1. These guys showed up in my yard a couple years ago (desert near ABQ) and I love them and they have been coming back and spreading a little each year. I had one this year that is yellow rather than the red/orange that most seem to be. Are they cousins to coneflowers?


    1. HI and thanks, we have several plants that are just the plain yellow one growing in our yard. They are also called Mexican Hats but also cut-leaf coneflowers or prairie coneflowers. Wishing you a great weekend.
