Gaillardia aristata Gallo® ‘Fire’


Gallo Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.220.550


Blanket Flowers are valuable in the summer border for their very long season of bloom. Plants form a low mound of light-green leaves, bearing upright stems of large daisy-type flowers. This selection has flaming orange flowers sporting bright yellow tips. Excellent for cutting, with nice long stems. Attractive to butterflies. Plants are drought-tolerant once established. Plants should be divided every 2 to 3 years, in early spring. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil that will stay wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
