Gaillardia × grandiflora Sunset ‘Sunrise’

Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.220.720

Blanket Flowers are valuable for their very long season of bloom. The Sunset Medium Series forms a low mound of gray-green hairy leaves, bearing strong, upright stems. The flowers are made up of single rows of flat petals in a vibrant colour and fringed in varying shades of yellow. This selection features two rows of flat petals in orange and golden yellow. The blooms are colourfast and age well. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil, especially if it remains wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
