Description

As the Lewis and Clark Expedition crossed the Continental Divide on July 6th, 1806, this showy native species was collected.  Blanket Flower blooms from summer through autumn, with yellow ray florets sometimes tinged red at the base, and reddish-orange central disk florets that are attractive to pollinators.  Deer and drought tolerant. Recorded and/or collected by Lewis and Clark on their expedition. 

Sow seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost date at 70 degrees F.  Transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost.  Approximately 40 seeds per packet.
