I = Indian Paintbrush

The Indian Paintbrush is a beautiful wildflower that grows happily along side the Bluebonnets. It is part of the colorful landscape this time of year in Texas.

    My first reaction was that they don’t look anything like the paintbrushes I’m used to seeing … until I consulted with Mr Google. I was thinking of Devil’s Paintbrushes – which are orangey-red – rather than your pretty purple Indian Paintbrushes.

    They look beautiful – I’m guessing a bumblebee magnet 🙂

      When I first moved to Texas I was told they were Indian paintbrushes. When I decided to post them I also Googled (always avoid public embarrassment!) I kept seeing orange paintbrushes. Panic!! So I googled “pink Indian paintbrushes ” and learned my information was correct…..whew! I was afraid of having to find another “I” word!!

        Bummer!
        We are out in west Texas this weekend. Not nearly as many wildflowers 😦

        Have you ever gone to Enis to see the bluebonnets ?
        It is beautiful!!

        I will check it out. We went to Friz a couple of times, north 281 was wow last spring. LBJ Wildflower Center is great, but not many flowers last year due to the drought. I think this year is going to be beautiful.

    How pretty! I don’t remember seeing them in this color before. Like above, the orange-red ones were what I’d seen as I traveled over Texas via blogs. 😉
