[Indian Blanket]

The Indian Blanket (Gaillardia Pulchella), also known as Firewheel, is the State wildflower of Oklahoma.

The Indian Blanket is an annual wildflower native to the central United States, common along roadsides and in prairies. Its brilliant red flowers with yellow rims bloom in June and July, but can also be seen from late spring to late fall.

Often planted as an ornamental, the Indian Blanket requires just a little attention to flourish. If interested, you can visit the Wildseed Farms, where you can purchase wildflower seeds direct from the grower.
