It was named after Maître Gaillard de Charentonneau, an 18th-century French magistrate who was an enthusiastic botanist.

Also known as Blanket Flower and Firewheel.
As the official State Wildflower of Oklahoma, it’s a symbol of Oklahoma's scenic beauty as well as the state's Native American heritage.
The Indian Blanket Flower is a distinctive, colourful grassland wildflower that tolerates Oklahoma's hot, dry weather.

(A gift from my neighbour who got tired of it. I don't question her reason, nor do I look a gift horse in the mouth).
