Gaillardia x grandiflora Sunset Orange - Blanket Flower

Product ref: P12663

Availability: Out of stock

Taking the gardening world by storm, this blanket flower is a breakthrough in gaillardia colouring! Rather than the typical bright red and yellow flowers, it looks just like it sounds - large, peachy orange sunset flowers with yellow tips and a central cone.

The blue-green foliage enhances this warm colouring and the round, chartreuse seed heads extend the interest after the flowers are spent. Unlike many of the older selections, this one has an improved upright habit rather than sprawling. It's simply fantastic!

These perennials require little care once established. They are heat tolerant and actually prefer to be grown in poorer soils.

They get their name from the manner in which they used to blanket North American prairies with their blooms.

They can still be found in fields and along roadsides in the prairie regions and into the Rockies.

Supplied in 3 litre containers.
