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.
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).
