    How to Plant Indian Blanket Flower

    About Blanket Flower

    Blanket Flower is a stunning native perennial wildflower. The plant produces intricately colored petals of alternating red and yellow hues. Blanket Flower seeds can be planted successfully anywhere in the U.S. but this species is especially beloved in arid areas with limited drainage.

    When to Plant Blanket Flower Seeds

    Direct sow in Spring, after the threat of frost has passed. In warmer climates, a Fall planting is also an option for Blanket Flower.

    Where to Plant Blanket Flower Seeds

    Choose a well-draining soil with Full Sun exposure. Although drought tolerant, maintain moisture until they're established.

    How to Plant Blanket Flower Seeds

    Broadcast sow your seeds directly onto the surface of the soil, and compress firmly onto the surface of the soil. Moisten once the seeds are sown.

    How to Care for Blanket Flower

    Once established, Blanket Flower needs little care or maintenance. Ideal spacing is 14-16 inches, thin once 2 inches tall, if needed, though Blanket Flower can tolerate some crowding. At the two-year mark, you can divide your Blanket Flower and replant the divisions.

So easy to grow

I basically broadcast the seed with no special preparation to our soil. Once the seed took hold this flower grew to an amazing height. The plant size ranged from 24 to 36 inches in stature and produced flowers as pictured.
