Maybe you’re familiar with the red paintbrush wildflower (castilleja indivisa) but take a look at her pink perennial cousin (Castilleja purpurea). There is, in fact, a range of colors. Paintbrushes gain some of their food supply from grasses and are included in the snapdragon family. The seeds are tiny at four million per pound so you only need a quarter pound per acre for planting. Save the wildlife and make spaces for nature.
