Description

Also known as Indian Blanket, Firewheel is native to the dry plains and open areas of North America, naturalized in almost every state of the contiguous United States and south to Oaxaca and Southern Mexico. 

Firewheel is easy to grow as an annual, and can easily reseed to reappear in future seasons. Deadheading will promote more blooms during late summer.
