Blanketflower

$6.50

Gaillardia aristata

This bi-colored variety is reminiscent of an Indian blanket; this bi-colored variety comes in yellow, red, burgundy, and brown. It is a native wildflower of the Northern Rockies, so it becomes better equipped to handle cold than its cousin, the Indian Blanket. The easy-to-grow blooms provide color all season long.

Meriwether Lewis collected the first specimen of this wildflower on July 7, 1806. His research of this and other native species by botanist Frederick Traugott Pursch in 1813, who completed a catalog of the species discovered on the famous expedition. The genus "Gaillardia" honors an 18th-century French botanist named Gaillard de Charentonneau. The common name Blanket Flower seems to come from the similarity of the brightly colored blossoms to Native American weaving.
