"OBX Map Picture Find" - # 10 Firewheel


OBX Firewheel, Blanketflower,
 Gaillardia pulchella
Firewheel of the Outer Banks creates a lavish display of color thriving in the sandy soil of the OBX. The Firewheel is also known as Indian Blanket Flowers and Gaillardia pulchella. The bloomed Firewheel's dark red, almost burgundy flower petals tipped in a bright yellow are visible for quite a distance.

The Firewheel wildflower can be seen in a plethora of locations on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In addition to the roadsides and dune lines, the Firewheel can be seen in residential and commercial landscaping throughout the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

See the beautiful Firewheels in the landscape at Manteo Town Common in the beginning of this YouTube video by Current TV:  "Manteo Town Common Opening Celebration May 14, 2021."

The Firewheel has also taken on a sentimental relevance in Outer Banks Destination Beach Weddings. In addition, Firewheel is becoming very popular in OBX bridal wedding bouquets and OBX boutineers flowers for the groom and groomsmen.
