Could you tell me whether it is the leaves or the spent flower heads, the seed heads, that cause irritation to bare legs after walking through a field of Indian Blankets? Gallardia I believe is the Latin name.
Thank you for this information. I remember the irritation, but never knew or bothered to find out which caused it.
