DESERT PAINTBRUSH

To see this wildflower means warm weather is finally coming where I live in northern Arizona. The Desert Paintbrush or Indian Paintbrush, is a wildflower found in desert scrub or woodland areas in western North America. They will bloom from April to August. The flowers are edible, they can range in color from red to orange to yellow.

  1. Paintbrush are one of my favourite flowers. We have 3 patches in our yard but no blooms yet. I didn’t know the “flowers” were edible … I may give sample some this year. 🙂
