Blanket Flower

Blanket Flower

Gaillardia /ɡeɪˈlɑːrdiə/

Gaillardia is a member of the sunflower and is common in North and South America.  The common name refers to the resemblance of the color to Native American blankets. It grows wild on our Montana property and the surrounding area.

These little gems grow all over the North 40. They come up in the middle of the road, even!  I think they are Phil’s favorite Montana wildflower.
