Gaillardia Commotion™ ‘Frenzy’

Commotion Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.220.410

Blanket Flowers are valuable in the summer border for their very long season of bloom. They form a low mound of light-green leaves, bearing upright stems of large daisy-type flowers. This selection has tubular or fluted petals of red with bright yellow tips, surrounding a burgundy button eye. Midsized with a mounded habit. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil that will stay wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. Selected by breeder John Dixon, and introduced by Skagit Gardens in Washington state. Hardiness is not yet fully determined but will quite likely be colder than Zone 5. USPP#19943: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
