Gaillardia × grandiflora ‘Sun Devil’


Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.220.260


Blanket Flowers are one of the longest-blooming perennials, well suited to hot sunny sites. This selection forms a low mound of olive-green leaves, bearing large flowers with fluted red petals each tipped in vibrant yellow. Removing faded flowers will greatly extend the blooming season. Outstanding for edging, borders, rock gardens or containers. Plants should be divided in early spring every 2 to 3 years. Plants will not tolerate wet, heavy clay soil, particularly in the winter. Flowers are attractive to butterflies, and also excellent for cutting. Part of the Sun™ series from Terra Nova Nurseries, Inc. of Oregon, USA. USPP#23645: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
