No more waiting around for those first blooms

You just won't believe the flower power of Arizona Red Shades until you see it blooming—and blooming, and blooming—in your garden.

The flowers are large, many-petaled, and lovely. Expect them to reach 4 inches wide and to crowd one another for space on compact plants 12 inches high and 10 to 14 inches wide. They begin blooming with the first warm weather—typically in late spring—and won't quit until nipped by fall frost.

Arizona Red Shades is the newest in the Arizona family of early-blooming, floriferous, compact plants. Arizona Sun revolutionized the way gardeners used Gaillardia, and now Arizona Red Shades has come to claim its spot in the sunny garden.

Hardy from one end of the country to the other, this native perennial is happy in any sun-soaked spot. It puts up with heat, humidity, cold, poor soil, and—once it has built up a good root system in your garden—drought. The flowers are lovely for cutting, too.

Gorgeous-not compact

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Eastern WA state (dry & cold)- These bloomed in all the colors shown on the site. Were NOT compact for me but then again, my entire garden was a jungle with last year's heat -my peppers grew to be 3-4' tall! Bloomed consistently. Did best when I hacked them back with scissors so will prune them to more compact shape this year. Ooops- just now realizing they may be perennials here in zone 6. I can remember a few of the places they were planted....

Not the best for the hotter zones

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

For the first three months the bloomed as promised (though many were closer to rust than red). However, the red had a real rot problem during the summer. And they never fully recovered (I planted them in three different places so culture wasn't the problem). I have removed ALL my grass so the 12 month appearance of flowers is critical. Yellow mesa is a perfect flower for central Florida. We have just had two nights of 25 degree weather and the plant is doing fine 12 monthe of bloom
