Meriwether Lewis collected the first specimen of this wildflower on July 7, 1806. His research of this and other native species was completed by botanist Frederick Traugott Pursch in 1813, who completed a catalogue of the species discovered on the famous expedition. The genus name Gaillardia honors an 18th century French botanist named Gaillard de Charentonneau. The common name Indian Blanket seems to come from the similarity of the brightly colored blossoms to Native American weaving.
