Blanket Flower

 (Gaillardia aristata)

 

Blanket flower or Firewheel, is a perennial native to the Great Plains and eastern United States at elevations of 1,220 to 1,983 m (4,000 to 5,000 ft.). Blanket flower grows to a height of 30.5 to 61 cm (12 to 24 in.). It has hairy stems and dandelion-like leaves. The flowers are large and daisy-like with red, domed centers, and red and yellow petals. The bloom period begins in June and continues through the fall.

Blanket flower is adapted to a wide range of soils, but needs a well-drained site and full sun. It is quite drought-tolerant.
