Now we know with it warming up outside, blanket is probably the last word you want to hear. However, we’re talking about Blanket Flowers!
Blanket flowers are known as Gaillardias and they are perennials that have a long season of bloom.
If sunflowers and daisies had a plant child, it would be a Gaillardia.
The Gaillardia’s flowers are produced from early summer to early fall. The flowers come in shades of orange, red, and yellow.
These plants attract many butterflies!
Sizes range from 10-12 inch dwarfs to some as tall as 24-30 inches.
All Gaillardias are easy to care for, with few insect or disease problems.
They require full son and very well-drained soil.
When the plants are established, they are very resistant to frost and drought.
They are often used as a border around landscaping but can be incorporated in many other ways.
