Few inhabitants of canyon country are as striking as Indian paintbrush. The brilliant scarlet to orange color is produced by bracts and sepals rather than actual petals. The plants are from 4 to 12 inches tall, growing in sandy or gravelly soils or crevices in much of western North America. Flowering from March to June, the showy colors help attract pollinators as well as photographers.
