Oklahoma's State Wildflower - Indian Blanket by 

Featured in:

Oklahoma’s state wildflower, the Indian blanket, is a member of the largest family of flowering plants, the composite family, also referred to as Asteraceae (formerly Compositae). Indian blanket (common name), or Gaillardia pulchella (scientific name), is a flat, multi-petaled, round flower. The petals are two distinctly separated colors, with dominate red in the center and predominant yellow at the tips. With stems radiating from a central root system, this bush-type plant ranges from one to three feet in height. More commonly known as blanketflowers, Gaillardia were named for Gaillard de Marentonneau, a French amateur botanist. Adopted as Oklahoma’s state wildflower in May 1986 after the passage of House Bill 1649 and approval by Gov. George Nigh, the Indian blanket serves as a symbol of Oklahoma’s scenic beauty and rich Indian heritage.

I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.

Please stop by and see what I added today.

    Lovely capture! I had it in the garden years ago.

  • Thank you so much. I do have it in my garden but sometimes prefer to find them in the wild. It is always exciting to walk around a bend and suddenly come upon a whole field of wildflowers.
