Sunshine Vitamin and Indian Blankets in the Baton Rouge Garden – Part 2

Fig 01- When petals drop, the seeds will be in a ball-like

We talked little bit about benefits of sunshine at previous post:

This second part about flowers in the corner. These showy flowers are so attractive. The shape and colors of these flowers are eye-catching.

One of them is Indian Blanket with scientific name is Gaillardia pulchella. This species is included in Asteraceae family. Its common name also known as:

- firewheel
- sundance.

Indian Blanket flowers is native to region of:

- South America
- North America

The exuberant hues also attract the pollinators. They fly and buzz around them.

Butterflies come in the sunny day, meanwhile bees and bumblebees come all day since early morning until late afternoon.

Fig 03- Flowers grow well in the garden

When I see its colors and associated to what it is called, I can imagine the beautiful woven ethnic blanket.

One of them is Navajo textiles, the classic woven with the earth colors, brown to yellow and serrated lightening patterns.

There are tales about this flower, and why people call it Indian Blanket.

The unique one in this Indian Blanket flowers, when the petals drop, the middle of the petal leave texture of tubes in a round shape. It looks like a small ball.

Have you seen Indian Blanket flower?
