The Lanceleaf Blanketflower is a seasonal wildflower plant which lasts during the summer. Here’s a good website with more information about this plant.

I keep this in direct sunlight. The flowers start out as fuzzy balls and then blossom into the beautiful firewheel shape you see below.

This plant requires almost no maintenance except occasional fertilizing.

I water it every day during peak summers. I fertilize it every 2 months or depending on when it shows signs of growth.

It will probably die off in a few months, but the beautiful flowers are worth it., while they last.

Here’re some good tools which will help you with your gardening.
