Gilia capitata, commonly known as globe gilia or blue-thimbleflower, is a species of flowering plant native to western North America, particularly in regions like California and the southwestern United States. It belongs to the Phlox family (Polemoniaceae).

Globe gilia is an annual wildflower that typically grows in open, dry habitats such as grasslands, prairies, and along roadsides. It is known for its distinctive globe-shaped clusters of bright blue flowers atop slender stems. The flowers are tubular with five lobes, and they attract various pollinators like bees and butterflies.

The plant itself has fine, fern-like foliage and can reach heights of around 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm). It blooms from late spring to early summer, adding a splash of color to the landscape.

Gilia capitata is relatively easy to grow from seed and thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant once established and requires minimal maintenance. Globe gilia is often used in wildflower meadows, native plant gardens, and naturalistic landscapes, where it contributes to biodiversity and supports native pollinators.

Overall, this charming wildflower is valued for its vibrant blue blooms, adaptability, and ecological benefits, making it a popular choice for native plant enthusiasts and gardeners alike.
