Gaillardia Commotion™ ‘Moxie’

Commotion Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.220.420

Blanket Flowers are valuable in the summer border for their very long season of bloom. They form a low mound of dark green leaves, bearing upright stems of large daisy-like flowers. This selection produces bright yellow, tubular or fluted petals surrounding an orange button eye. Midsized with a mounded habit. Attractive to butterflies and an excellent cut flower. Drought tolerant once established. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil that may stay wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. Hardiness is not yet fully determined but will likely be colder than Zone 5. USPP#24331: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
