Gaillardia aristata ‘Arizona Red Shades’


Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.220.180


Blanket Flowers are valuable for their very long season of bloom. This selection blooms profusely even in the first year, forming a low, compact mound. large, crimson-red daisies, some with yellow tips, appearing from June into the autumn. Thrives in hot, sunny sites. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil that will stay wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. Sister colour to G. ‘Arizona Sun’, the All America Selections and Fleuroselect Gold Medal winner.
