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 very compact selection has bicolor petals of scarlet, tipped with gold surrounding a deep red button eye. Blooms from early summer through early fall. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Heat tolerant and actually prefers poorer soils. They got their name from the fact that they used to blanket North American prairies with their blooms. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil that will stay wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming. A 2009 introduction by Jelitto Seeds of Germany.
