Gaillardia aristata/Blanket Flower




Large flowers with bright red centers and yellow tips adorn this perennial all summer. Full sun, low moisture.  Click here for more information.

It’s not too late to plant this fall! There is still time for the perennial roots to establish themselves before the ground becomes heavy with frost. Mulch around the root system for insulation, allow the foliage to die back naturally with the cold, as it helps feed and sustain the root system. Water deeply, once or twice a week, until all the foliage has gone. A plant with no foliage needs less water. Get ready to reap your reward of a beautiful new perennial next spring and summer!
