Double the fun with two rows of rose-red petals tipped in yellow. The bold colors beautifully accent its soft-textured, gray-green foliage. Their long-blooming performance is phenomenal in the border or as a container accent. Patent pending.

Gaillardia thrive in poor, sandy soils. The common name, blanket flower, refers to the resemblance to brightly patterned Native American blankets. Pairs nicely with the soft blues of perennial Geraniums.

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.

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).
