Gaillardia ‘Arizona Apricot’


Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.220.110


Blanket Flowers are valuable in the summer border for their very long season of bloom. This selection blooms profusely even in the first year forming a low, compact mound of bright green leaves. Large, daisy-like flowers with layers of pointed petals, yellow on the edges, deepening to rich apricot in the centre, appear in early summer and continue well into the fall. This is a never-before-seen colour mix in Blanket Flowers. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Not the best choice for heavy clay soils that remain wet during the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. A 2011 All American Selection Winner.
