Gaillardia 'Tokajer' - Blanket Flower
Product ref: P15066
Marmalade-orange flower petals are darker towards the eye than at the tips and come together at the reddish-brown, button-like center. Since the blooms keep on coming from early summer into autumn, they provide continuous colour in containers and will keep your vases full of fresh blanket flower bouquets all season long. They even attract butterflies!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 praries with their blooms. They can still be found in fields and along roadsides in the prarie region and into the Rockies. Gaillardia requires full sun and well-drained soil in order to prosper. Given too much shade, the plants tend to flop over. Though they will perform best in moist soils, they are highly drought tolerant. Supplied in approx 2 litre containers.
