Blanketflower is a 2’ to 4’ tall native perennial with native distribution primarily in the west and northern most tier of states. It grows best in dry to medium moisture soils and will not tolerate wet sites. Blanketflower is a widely used garden flower in areas outside its native range. A continuous and prolific display of brilliant red flowers with variable width yellow rims combined with a flowering period from late spring to early fall make this a garden favorite. It is an excellent cut flower with a vase life of over a week. Native American medicinal uses are numerous.
