This bi-colored variety of wildflowers resembles an Indian blanket and comes in yellow, red, burgundy, and brown shades. It is native to the Northern Rockies and is better adapted to cold weather than its cousin, the Indian Blanket. The flowers are easy to grow and provide color throughout the season.
Meriwether Lewis collected the first specimen of this wildflower on July 7, 1806. Botanist Frederick Traugott Pursch later studied this and other native species, completing a catalog of the species discovered during the famous expedition. The genus "Gaillardia" is named after the 18th-century French botanist Gaillard de Charentonneau. The common name "Blanket Flower" is believed to refer to the resemblance of the brightly colored blossoms to Native American weaving.
