This image is created from time-lapse photographs of a Firewheel flower made over a period of 72 hours as it flowered.
The Firewheel is also known as the Blanketflower and is native to the northwestern United States. The name may derive from the flower's resemblance to brightly patterned Native American blankets. It is both a wildflower and a popular garden flower blooming from spring through autumn. The seeds attract a variety of wild birds including Goldfinches. The Firewheel symbolizes modesty, charm, happiness and joy.
