Yellow catches the eye best!

These are compact - 12" - and more blooms than you can count. Easily maintained and oh, the seeds you can gather for additional plantings! When seedlings are up 1-2 inches, you have to add a little soil around the base to keep them upright. But then it's all pleasure! highly recommend these over "red" or taller varieties. Yellow catches the eye best!

My Experience with Arizona Sun Apricot and Red
Rose from TX wrote on June 05, 2017

This variety of blanket flower is much more difficult than presented. I got excellent germination on both apricot and the red. The problem begins when you transplant them from the starting house to individual pots. They seem to melt away before your eyes. I had better luck transplanting plants that were started in the fall and overwintered on my south-facing back porch than those I started earlier this year. The apricot seems to be stronger than red, as the red almost all but died out. Today is June 5, 2017 and I have blooms on one of the older yellow plants. My soil is everything blanket flower wants, not very fertile, loose with a lot of sand and a good slope for drainage. We have a very long growing season in Texas, with extremely hot weather and intense sun. I am hopeful for a good outcome!

Amazing color!
Kristina from NJ wrote on November 05, 2015

I am obsessed with the color of these flowers. I only got 3 plants from my packet of seeds that I planted in the spring, but they are beautiful and are still blooming in November in NJ, zone 7. I will be crushed if they do not come back in the spring,

Compact, multi-bloom flower
Nancy from NC wrote on May 21, 2013

I started several of these from seed two years ago. I love the bright color and that it had lots of blooms. I downgraded it however, because it did not winter well. We had a fairly mild winter, so I was disappointed that few of the plants survived. I am giving it another chance by growing more plants this summer. Maybe I'll have better luck.

Prolific Bloomer
Angela from OK wrote on June 04, 2012

I started my plants last fall from seed. They bloomed profusely this spring. Butterflies love them. Blooms are true to pictures shown here. Plants planted in the fall have done better than the ones I planted in spring. I recommend fall planting.
