Gaillardia (Blanket Flower)

Durable, low maintenance, blooms all summer

This native wildflower is easy to grow, brilliantly colored, offers a variety of sizes, and blooms all summer. Blanket Flower (Gaillardia) is a hardy, drought-tolerant perennial (there are also annual varieties) that's easily sown from seed. Thriving in full sun, Blanket Flower forms dense colonies of daisy-like flowers from early summer into fall. The blooms, single or double, are usually multi-colored with yellows, reds, and oranges, attracting butterflies, happily living in containers or mass plantings, and gladly adorning vases as cut flowers. The National Garden Bureau has declared 2015 the "Year of Gaillardia" due to this flower's phenomenal heat tolerance and broad variety of blazing red-orange colors.
