Description

Bathe in the sunset hues of this unstoppable Gaillardia from late spring until autumn. With its exceptionally long flowering season, 'African Sunset' will illuminate containers and border edges with brilliant, golden, daisy-like flowers, flushed with warm amber and carmine.

Gaillardia are such stalwart performers and ‘African Sunset’ is no exception. It requires very little attention, forming neat, compact mounds with a strong upright habit. Drought and heat tolerant, it thrives in poor, dry soils providing it has full sun. The grey green foliage is quickly smothered in blooms which are highly attractive to pollinating blooms. Their sturdy stems make them excellent vase specimens. Height 40cm (16”). Spread: 50cm (20”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
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!
More Info
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.
