Indian Blanketflower...named Blanketflower by Native Americans, this is one of the most handsome of wildflowers. With their wealth of bloom and gorgeous orange-red to canary yellow flower heads, these wildflowers stand like hundreds of “Fourth of July pinwheels” at the top of their slender stems. This annual, growing about 2 feet tall with jagged ray petals circling a central brownish-purple cone of disk florets. Gaillardia is a member of the daisy family, so each petal is a flower. The showy ray flowers are orangish-red and marked with a broad band of yellow at the tip. Each petal has serrated, tooth-like incisions.
