Giant red Indian paintbrush (Castilleja miniata ssp. miniata)

Giant red Indian paintbrush (Castilleja miniata ssp. miniata) is a California native herbaceous perennial. Like other Indian paintbrushes (e.g., Purple owl's clover), giant red Indian paintbrush is a hemiparasite; that is, despite obtaining water and nutrients from the roots of a host plant, it is also able to photosynthesize to some extent.
