Blanket Flowers are valuable in the summer border for their very long season of bloom. Plants form a low mound of green leaves, bearing upright stems of large daisy-like flowers. This selection is the first in the new Fanfare breeding program from the UK and features unique pinwheel blooms, compact habit and a long flowering period. Tubular petals are in warm burnt orange tones with yellow tips and surround a large russet eye. Excellent for cutting, with nice long stems. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. Although rated conservatively 5 by the breeder, this is likely to survive to Zone 2 or 3 just like other hybrid Gaillardia selections. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
