Indian Paintbrush...There are approximately 200 species of Paintbrush in the western hemisphere. One cannot easily forget the sublime sunset hues of their intricate flowers with brightly colored bracts that surround the blooms. There is an old legend that a Native American God gave some paintbrushes dripping with paint to an Indian brave who was sitting on a mountain side so that he could paint the sunset. When the brave finished, he left the paintbrushes on the ground and they grew into these delightful flowers. This striking perennial is honored by poet A.V. Hudson, “A strange little flower with sun-kissed nose, with perfume yet red as a rose.”
