A little softer in color than the other Gaillardia, Oranges and Lemons blends well in the border. A recent English introduction. Layered peachy-orange petals with golden tips surround a gold central cone atop green-blue foliage. Unique chartreuse seed heads provide additional late season interest. Non-stop performance. Patented.
Gaillardia are completely carefree. From the early summer on, very showy banded flowers "blanket" this plant. The ends of the petals have a torn, ruffled appearance. Butterflies are drawn to it.
New plantlets can be started by cutting straight down along the side of a clump in midsummer. New plants will form at the severed roots. Completely carefee. Best in poor loose soils (no clay).
