Multnomah Falls Plant of the Day #6 Blanket Flower

Blanket Flower – Gaillardia aristata

I’ve read that the blanket flower is named for its resemblance to the patterns of of color on woven blankets. It is also a low growing perennial that tends to appear as a carpet of red and yellow blooms when found in the wild. A great color spot for any sunny garden!

Where: You’ll find Blanket flower planted just behind the benches in the central middle planter in front of the Multnomah Falls Lodge.
