Compact and Endlessly Colorful!

So free-flowering!
The latest in the amazing early-blooming, compact Sun series is this exquisite pastel blend of apricot and yellow, a never-before-seen color mix for the Gaillardia family! 'Arizona Apricot' is a marvel of a plant, its blooms exquisite, its hardiness and adaptability unsurpassed, and its size compact yet free-flowering! We highly, highly recommend it for your sunny border and best containers.

'Arizona Apricot' sets 3- to 3½-inch blooms with several layers of long, pointed petals. Each petal is apricot from the base to about ⅔ of the way to the tip, which is bright yellow. They petals surround a huge central cone combining amber, gold, and green. The flowers begin appearing in early summer and continue well into autumn. Simply incredible!

This plant is quite compact -- just 12 inches high and wide, but with great branching. Given sunshine and any well-drained soil, it's off and running! And as a selection of the native species, 'Arizona Apricot' has all the vigor you would expect of a wildflower. Tolerant of heat, humidity, drought, cold, and poor soil, once established in your garden it will be long-lived and trouble-free. And it's hardy just about everywhere in the continental U.S.! Truly, there are few perennials that can equal its performance.

Do grow this 2011 All America Selection Winner this season. No other flower in the garden equals its combination of beauty and vigor. Prepare to be delighted! Zones 3-10. Cannot ship to GU, VI.
