Indian Paintbrush (castilleja coccinea) is commonly described as an annual forb or herb. This scarlet flower is native to the United States and has its most active growth period in spring and summer. Indian Paintbrush has green foliage and conspicuous red flowers and does not retain its leaves from year to year. The best bloom is typically observed in mid-spring, with fruit and seed production beginning then and lasting into summer. Compared to other plants, Indian Paintbrush has a moderate lifespan and a rapid growth rate. When mature (at 20 years), the plant will reach up to 1.6 feet high.
