Prairie Coneflower

The Prairie Coneflower (Ratibida columnifera) is common on roadsides and other disturbed areas. It blooms from July to August. Native Americans used it as a remedy for snakebit and Poison-ivy.

These pictures were taken next to the small trail leading out from NCAR's fitness center to the trail on the side of the building.
