 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  Today's flower is one of my favorites but I can never seem to get it to come back the next year in my gardens.  It's weird as I find it growing wild so it has to be returning and not freshly planted.  This is Indian Blanket Flower which usually blooms May through September.  It is also known as Gaillardia. The Kiowa Indians believed it brought good luck and it is the state wildflower of Oklahoma.  It gets it's name from the fact that it usually grows in large groups and looks like a blanket of color.
