Gaillardia aristata 'Burgundy' (Large Plant)

Blanket Flower

Hardy Perennial

The large, wine red flowers of Gaillardia aristata 'Burgundy' last for months on end! Blooming continuously from June to September, these hardy perennials give an unrivalled performance in beds, borders and patio containers. Blanket flowers are loved by pollinating insects and their cheery daisy blooms make fabulous cut flowers. Gaillardias are particularly resilient plants thriving in light sandy soils, even tolerating drought and coastal positions where many plants would struggle. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Grow gaillardia plants in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun.
Feed and water blanket flower plants until they are fully established. Once established gaillardia copes well with dry soils and is reasonable drought tolerant. Regular deadheading of faded gaillardia flowers will encourage more blooms to be produced. In late summer, cut back old foliage and flower stems to 15cm (6") to encourage basal growth before the first frosts. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of blanket flower in spring, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant.
