Gaillardia Galya™ ‘Red Spark’

Double flowering Blanket Flower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.220.590

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 from the Galya™ series features unique, double, puffy, deep red flowers. Vigorous. 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.
