This Gaillardia is totally carefree. It was a beacon in the garden in spite of a midsummer drought. The color is bright but not in the least gaudy. I enjoyed it with yellow climbing roses, and it's still blooming away in mid October.

Click to see larger image in a new window. GAILLARDIA - Blanket Flower Short 16-18" - Plant 12" apart. zone 3-9 G. Tokajer - Marmalade-orange-brown daisies have a different look than most Gaillardias. A rich history brings this "new" introduction out of occupied Germany. Developed by Jellito Seeds.

General Information:
Ever-blooming Gaillardias. From the early summer on, very showy flowers blanket this plant. The ends of the petals have a torn, ruffled appearance. Butterflies are drawn to it.

Plant Care:
New plantlets can be started by cutting straight down along the side of a clump in midsummer. New plants will form at the severed roots. Completely carefee. Best in poor loose soils (no clay).
