Dwarf Goblin Blanket Gaillardia Aristata Seeds
Packet of 50+ freshly harvested home grown seeds.
Beautiful variety of ornamental and medicinal and the State wildflower of Oklahoma, USA. Apparently very popular with Native American Indians, the Kiowa believed the flowers brought good luck. Some Plateau Indian tribes used this flower to treat wounds and settle fevers. Blackfoot Nation used an infusion of the plant rubbed on nursing mother’s sore nipples, a poultice of chewed, powdered roots were applied to skin disorders, an infusion was used as an eyewash, an infusion of roots was taken for gastroenteritis, an infusion was also used as nose drops.
Prolific flowers that come in waves so there is always a mixture of new buds, large fully open flowers and pretty little pom pom pods, seeds.
No need to cut back any unattractive shriveled flowers as with this guy they just drop their petals when they are finished and the furry little balls that contain the seeds look really pretty in their own right.
If you want to spread them around the garden a bit, just pull a few pods off and rub them in your hands. Do it over a bare patch of loose turned soil and water them in, and you can’t go wrong.
Great to provide a splash of vivid orange and yellow colour where you need it.
Grown by me and the Mrs organically, no chems, no nasties, no problems!!!
