Gaillardia grandiflora 'Red Sun' PP#23389 is the newest blanket flower from Terra Nova Nurseries. Its broad petals of hot orange-red set it apart from other gaillardia. A vigorous grower that quickly forms a dense clump of blue-green foliage. A non-stop bloomer that will give you enjoyment all season long.
Gaillardia are hardy perennials that are drought tolerant once they are established. They endure heat better than many other plants so they are often used in the South, to Zone 9/10. Sometimes referred to as Blanket Flowers, they thrive best in well draining, poor soil. A native to North America, it gets its common name from the fact that it would 'blanket' the countryside prairies when in bloom. Generally considered deer-resistant they make great cut flowers, both fresh and dried.
