Gaillardia Goblin adds a flamboyant color scheme to the garden! Pleasing banded flowers with sunny yellow serrated tips surround orange petals and centers to give it a ruffled appearance. Compact low mounds of downy, olive green leaves are highlighted by the bold, long-blooming flowers.

Blanket Flowers are very drought resistant. Pairs nicely with the soft blues of perennial Geraniums. Completely carefree. Near the end of the season, spent flower heads can be left to attract goldfinches to the seed.

Gaillardia General Information

The common name of Gaillardia refers to the resemblance to brightly patterned Native American blankets - hence Blanket Flower. Extremely drought and heat tolerant, once established. 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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Gaillardia Plant Care

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).
