This blanket flower certainly lives up to its name, with its ample flower heads bearing all the colors of a blazing sunrise -- bright yellow, rich gold, refreshing orange, and mellow rosy red. These butterfly-attracting blooms are held straight up, facing the sun on sturdy stems. What a treasure for border, meadow garden, and container!

Sunset Flash is a dwarf variety, just 12 to 14 inches high and wide but covered in blooms over an extra-long season. In most climates, the buds begin opening in late spring and don't quit until fall. Such a brilliant color display, from the yellow petal tips to the ruby-red center! And that's not even counting the butterflies and bees that flock to this native perennial.

This Blanket Flower offers soft green foliage and a tight, mounded habit. It stands up to just about any adversity you can throw its way, asking only for pampering the first season. For best blooming, you will want to keep it well watered -- but if the worst happens and it dries out, the flowers may be affected but the plant should bounce back!

These blooms are lovely on the plant, but you may have to cut a few to grace indoor vases. They're just too beautiful not to share!

Sunset Flash is memorable for its beauty alone, but its resistance to deer, rabbits, poor soil, heat, humidity, and cold winters make it a must-grow for Southern and Northern gardens alike. Zones 5-9.
