Rosy Paintbrush

Castilleja rhexifolia


Modified leaves, called bracts are bright pink to rose-purple and hide the true flowers. The true flowers are inconspicuous green tubes within the colorful bracts. Rosy paintbrush will hybridize with yellow paintbrush to give a palette of colors ranging from pale pink to salmon to coral.
