Known also as blanket flower, Gaillardia is a native perennial with flowers that bloom throughout the summer and into the fall.
With it’s bright red center surrounded by yellow, the flowers are singled and grow on long stems above the long, soft, hairy leaves. There are many kinds of Gaillardia but we grow the Arizona Sun. Gaillardia’s are re-seeders, so if you see them pop up again don’t be shocked.
They can tolerate extreme heat and look their best once they are cut back when their color fades. Water a few times a week when soil is dry.
