God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love...II Timothy 1: 7
I looked up information about these wildflowers in my North American
Wildlife book from Reader's Digestand here is what I found.
"Algonquian Indians called this member of the poppy family puccoon, as they did almost any plant that was a source of dye. They used its copious red latex to color clothing and baskets, and applied it to their bodies and faces as ceremonial paint. In the latter capacity, it also served as an insect repellent.. "
