Gaillardia-Blanket Flower- The common name of this flower is said to refer to the colorful patterned blankets made by Native Americans. The flowers usually have two colors, ranging from red and orange to yellow. It was also said to refer to how this plant could blanket the ground with flowers that mimic the sun.
One Native American legend tells the story of when an excellent weaver had died that her grave was covered with flowers as brilliantly colored as the blankets she made.
Native to North and South America. It prefers sandy soil, popping up from April to late fall.
The wildflowers serve a purpose here on the island, so we leave them in place. The native wildflowers help keep the dunes from eroding with strong winds and rising surf, especially during a hurricane or tropical storm.
Its flowers are not scented but attract summer pollinators such as butterflies, bees, and beetles depending on the flowers for food, rest, and shelter.
Deer and rabbits usually avoid these plants making Gaillardia welcome in any garden.
Healing properties Native American peoples made tea from Gaillardia to treat gastroenteritis and sore eyes. The Kiowa considered it good luck.
In the Language of Flowers, Gaillardia symbolizes bravery that inspired the creation of the Favor Flower Handmade Soap Collection.
