Description

Gaillardias are easy to grow perennials with a long flowering period.  Their common name is 'Blanket Flower' with good reason, as you will quite literally get a blanket of flowers all summer from this lovely perennial. Plants also set seed so you will get new plants appearing in the border.  With their wonderfully hot colour mixes of reds, orange and yellow these plants look great in a pot or in the front / middle of a mixed border. Bees and Butterflies love their large flowers too.

Planting Conditions

Gaillardia are very easy to grow, provided they are planted in full sun and well drained soil.

Watering & Feeding

They should be watered well in order to establish properly, and in their second year they should be fairly drought tolerant.

General Care

Dead head flowers to encourage more blooms and flowers will keep coming until Autumn. Do not worry about feeding as poor soil can make Gaillardia produce more flowers.
