Gaillardia-Indian Blanket Flower Gaillardia g-pulchella (Florida Native)

Gaillardia

Blanket-flower, also known as Indian blanket or Fire wheel, can be found in dry savannahs, coastal dunes, and other dry, open areas in Florida. In North Florida, it blooms in the spring, summer, and into the autumn, while in Central and South Florida, it blooms all year. Its vibrant blooms entice a wide range of pollinating insects. The ray florets of blanketflower are typically bicolored, with an inner red band and an outer yellow band. Flowers may also be entirely red or yellow, have an inner band surrounded by a white band, or be entirely white or yellow on special occasions. Occasionally, ray florets are tubular, meaning they are small at the base and flare out like trumpets. The diskflorets in the flower's middle range from dark red to purplish.
