Description for Gaillardia double mixed
Blanket flowers are wonderfully cheerful, long-blooming plants for hot, sunny gardens. They produce single or double daisy flowers through most of the summer and well into fall. The daisy-like flowers are produced from early summer to early fall in shades of orange, red and yellow, adding sizzle to the garden and attracting nectar-seeking butterflies.
Planting and care
Plant Gaillardia x Grandiflora any time after frost.
Dig a hole twice the diameter of the pot the plant is in.
Carefully remove the plant from its container and place it in the hole so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface.
Carefully fill in around the root ball and firm the soil gently. Water thoroughly.
Caring for Gaillardia double mixed
- Gaillardia x grandiflora does not require deadheading to keep blooming, but the plants will look better and be fuller if you do cut the stems back, when the flowers start to fade. You will also get more continuous flowering with deadheading.
Early summer to early fall.
