(8-18" tall) There's more to this beautiful combination of Texas Bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush than meets the eye. Sure, the colors look fabulous together, and they both enjoy a full sun site with well-drained soil and bloom in late spring to early summer. Look deeper and you'll find that these are true plant partners! Indian Paintbrush is a hemi-parasitic plant: It grows best when its roots are in close proximity to a suitable partner. In this case, the roots of an Indian Paintbrush plant will form an association with the roots of a nearby Texas Bluebonnet plant and will draw off a portion of the nutrients and moisture it needs to thrive, without harming the host bluebonnet. Without a nearby host, Indian Paintbrush plants may survive, but their vigor will slowly decline and they won't show their true splendor. What a fascinating world takes place out of our view, beneath our feet! This duo attracts hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies, will naturalize to fill in a garden or meadow area, and is deer-resistant.
