Flower Native Texas Paintbrush 100 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
An upright, hairy annual, perennial or biennial herb native to Texas with single erect stems and a slender taproot. The terminal red-orange flower color is a misconception. Actually the flower is tiny, creamy white to pale yellow, encircled by the red-orange leaf-like bracts. The seeds are very, very small and should be sown directly on the soil surface. Adapted to well-drained areas in full sun. Not the easiest variety to cultivate, but the lure of such magnificent flowers certainly compensates for the effort. You can find these along the roadsides in Texas mixed with bluebonnets. Plant in fall for spring growth.
Suggested Use: gardens, roadsides, open meadows, mixtures. Creates ribbons of color for miles along Texas highways in the spring. Does not transplant well. Requires a period of time to become established. David's Garden Seeds is a Veteran owned business that has been providing quality seeds since 2009. Once you get these established, which may take several years, you will be in for a bouquet of flowers year after year.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
