Texas Paint Brush
(Castilleja indivisa)

Texas Paintbrush

Texas Indian Paintbrush is one of Texas' most beautiful landscape displays. In Bluebonnet country, large fields of red and blue are an impressive sight. This showy plant is one of our earliest Spring flowers and makes its appearance along with Bluebonnets in March. Though native to Texas, they will grow in other areas.
