Rich maroon-red petals with sunny yellow tips surround the reddish-brown, button-like center. These daisy-like blooms are highly valued for their hot red and yellow hues and they attract butterflies. Since the flowers just keep on coming from early summer into fall, they provide continuous color in containers and will keep your vases full of fresh blanket flower bouquets all season long! These perennials require little care once established. They are heat tolerant and actually prefer to be grown in poorer soils. They get their name form the manner in which they used to blanket North American prairies with their blooms. They cans still be found in fields and along roadsides in the prairie region and into the Rockies.
Gaillardia requires full sun and well-drained soil in order to prosper. Given too much shade, the plants tend to flop over. Though they will perform best in moist soils, they are highly drought tolerant. Do not enrich the soil with compost or other rich ingredients when planting this perennial. It does best in poor, loose soils and does not tolerate heavy clay. Plants may be divided every 2-3 years in either spring or fall and are also easily grown from seed. Deadheading spent blooms will prolong the bloom time.
