Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Kobold' (Large Plant)

Blanket Flower, Gaillardia aristata 'Goblin'

Hardy Perennial

An exceptionally long flowering hardy perennial, with flowers from June to September. Gaillaria x grandiflora 'Kobold' really stands out in the border too! When at their peak of flowering, these plants will be covered in flowers, so much so that you won't see the foliage! Gaillardia are at their happiest in poor, sandy or stony soils, which is excellent for garden problem areas, and will survive periods of drought. Blanket Flower plants are hardy, and will come back year after year, and are ideal for beginners. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Grow Blanket Flower plants in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Plants will also cope with, and sometimes thrive in, poor, stony, gravelly soils too!
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.
