In Oklahoma this is our state wild flower, you can see them growing free everywhere on the road sides.

I've never seen Indian paintbrush growing in the wild (I'm an Illinois girl, where our prairies have lots of milkweed, Queen Anne's lace and chicory). I'll bet a field full of them is a lovely sight.

(But chicory and QAL are both from Europe, I believe.) Lovely article!

Oh, you're so right, Carrie. I just named them because they're all over the place and I've always liked them, but they no doubt qualify as invasives! Well, let's see, I should have mentioned wild garlic and onion, aster, black-eyed Susan, coneflower, liatris and goldenrod instead...

Indian Blanket, otherwise known as Gaillardia Pullchela, is the state wildflower in Oklahoma and has been since the 1980's. However, both Indian Paintbrush and Indian Blanket, as well as Wine Cups (sometimes called Cowboy Roses), Black Eyed Susans, Blue Eyed Grass, and a host of other wildflowers (see ) grow in abundance here.
