Gaillardia ‘Candy Corn’

Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.220.120

Blanket Flowers are valuable in the summer border for their very long season of bloom. Plants form a low mound of light-green leaves, bearing upright stems of large daisy-like flowers. This unique selection features orange-red and gold bicoloured tubular petals surrounding a large burgundy eye. Plants are midsized with a good mounding habit. Excellent for cutting, with nice long stems. Good choice for a habitat garden where they will attract butterflies, bees and birds. Drought tolerant once established. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming.
