Description

Gaillardia (Blanket Flower)   gay-Lar-di-uh
Gaillardia, also known as blanket flower, is an easy-to-grow, short-lived perennial with richly colored, daisy-like flowers. The plant forms a slowly spreading mound, and the common name may be a reference to how they can slowly spread and “blanket” an area. Blanket flowers are fast-growers. This garden favorite puts out large showy blossoms in shades of reds and yellows throughout the warm season months. Gaillardia will perform best in well-drained, moist soil, but can tolerate dry conditions, even drought conditions once established. It can also tolerate poor soils, heat and humidity. It has no serious disease issues.
