Indian Blanket (Gaillardia pulchella), the Oklahoma State Wildflower, is spectacularly beautiful and easy-to-grow. Plants bear large 2 1/2-4" blossoms in varying shades of yellow and red on slender stems 8-2"'/20-61 cm. tall. Indian Blanket plants are drought and heat-resistant, making them an excellent source for beautiful cut flowers throughout the summer. Select a sunny location for Indian Blanket and plant in well drained soil during early spring or fall (recommended in mild climate). For best results, loosen soil with rake or hoe. Mix seeds with a cup of  sand or other inert material and broadcast over planting area. Lightly rake seed into soil or cover with peat moss or similar light mulch. Keep soil moist until plants begin to grow. Indian Blanket requires little care. Water only when necessary. [TABLE=55]
