Indian blanket

Gaillardia pulchella

Description:

Long stemmed flower. Had a large seed head that was reddish or burnt orange in color. We could not find any that had petals. Update: Thank you Brian38 for the i.d.

Habitat:

These flowers were found in a filed next to our school. They can bloom year round, but we see them around here mostly during spring and summer.

Notes:

One of my students spotted this flower. We were lucky to get such a close photograph of the bee!

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
