Indian Paintbrush (72509 bytes)

 

This species of Indian Paintbrush, Castilleja integra, grows in central & south Texas.  Its bracts are not as intensely colored as the more common Scarlet Paintbrush.  Indian Paintbrush is a truly wild plant - very difficult to cultivate because it is a hemiparasite on grasses.
