Sunset Cutie Blanket Flower

Item #38162


Colorful butterfly magnet resists rabbits and deer

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or in this case, any eyes that behold Sunset Cutie Blanket Flower. Its dazzling bicolor display looks gorgeous, electrifying the landscape or bursting from a vase. Those pretty ruby and yellow petals attract more than just human attention: they draw in plenty of butterflies as well. Sunset Cutie Blanket Flower is an enthusiastic grower with a particularly long bloom time, making it a wonderful season extender.

As durable as it is lovely, this blanket flower resists deer and rabbits with ease and is incredibly easy to maintain. Find a home for them in normal or sandy soil and don't water it too much because it actually prefers dryer soil. Few perennials are easier to grow than this selection of the native species. It is tolerant of unseasonable heat, humidity, cold, and drought. Poorly fertile soils are no problem. Give this plant plenty of food and water this first season, and it will make itself in home in the sunny perennial border for many years to come. Plant Sunset Cutie Blanket Flower in masses or tuck them into your borders for a pop of sizzling color.
