152 WILDFLOWER BOUQUET
Indian blanket flower, spiderwort and firewheel. Webster County, Nebraska. A beautiful bouquet of native wildflowers accents the prairie grasses of Webster County, Nebraska. Indian Blanket, also known as Firewheel, grow in dense colonies of brilliant red flowers with yellow rims. Native to the central United States, they are hardy, drought tolerant plants that thrive in heat and full sun in well drained soils. Another plant common in the tallgrass prairie is the Spiderwort. Once thought to be a cure for spider bites, this purple flower has arching, grass-like foliage with three petaled flowers and six prominent, yellow stamins. Webster County, Nebraska.
