Blanket Flower Seeds & Plants

Blazing Color on an Extremely Hardy, Dependable Perennial

Gaillardia (Blanket Flower) is a blessing for harsh climates: incredibly hardy, this beautiful flower tolerates the light frost of winters as high as zone 3, but also thrives in very hot summers as low as zone 11! This native wildflower is easy to grow, brilliantly colored, offers a variety of sizes, and blooms all summer. The blooms can be single or double, boasting shades of yellow, orange, or red, but they all attract butterflies and make excellent cutflowers. All varieties are easily sown from seed, drought tolerant, and sun-loving. Unpalatable to deer, this practically unstoppable flower will bloom strong in your garden every summer for years to come! Blazing hot colors and unbeatable heat tolerance are the reasons why the National Garden Bureau named 2015 the Year of Gaillardia!
