Gaillardia aristata, commonly known as blanket flower, is a native perennial wild flower, which makes this delightful and colorful specimen perfect for sunny locations.
With it's showy flowers, it makes a nice addition to your butterfly garden as well as a great cut flower. All pollinators seem to love them, so if you're concious about attracting good insects to your garden, this is the one for you!
Gaillardia aristata prefers full sun but will tolerate some partial shade.
The daisy-like flowers bloom summer to fall in shades of red and yellow.
Blanket Flower is a native wildflower of our North American plains and prairies. It's often used as a cut flower in arrangements!
Another bonus, you ask? Neither deer nor rabbit have ever touched my Gaillardia! That fact alone sold me!
