Goblin Blanket Flower | Gaillardia
Loose clumps of fuzzy, upright stems topped with daisy-like flowers form a blanket of blooms. Blanket Flowers are one of the longest-blooming perennials, well suited to hot sunny sites. This selection forms a low mound of olive-green leaves, bearing large flame red daisies, each petal tipped with golden yellow. Removing faded flowers will greatly extend the blooming season.
Outstanding for edging, borders, rock gardens or containers. Plants should be divided in early spring every 2 to 3 years.
These will not tolerate wet, heavy clay soil, particularly in the winter. Flowers are attractive to butterflies, and also excellent for cutting.
Blooms summer to fall
