Growing up, as a Girl Guide, I spent a lot of time outdoors hiking. One of the only plants I remembered distrinctly was the Indian Paintbrush, Latin name Castilleja. When this Indian Paintbrush colorway came my way, it became only too clear that it deserved to be something as special as that wild plant from my youth.
