My garden is young, just starting its third year. In such a short time I still have had a few plants that I thought were outstanding. Mesa Yellow Gaillardia is certainly one of them. It has maintained the beautiful green foliage and has continued to bloom those bright yellow blooms since being planted in the hot summer till now, near the end of January. How much longer it will continue this show is yet to be seen. It would be hard for me to say enough good things about this plant. So far no bugs and no special treatment of any kind has been needed.

pretty impressed so far... I transplanted this flower during our heatwave with heat index of 105-110 daily for a week. I watered it every morning and it has done really well, better than some of the other species I put in to "fill space"" for now. I hope this one makes it back next year I will plan on cutting off it for more plants.
