Gaillardia Arizona Sun - blanket flower
Blanket flowers love it hot and sunny, and will bloom from spring right through summer and autumn, especially if you clip over to deadhead once in a while. Arizona Sun has classic blanket flower good looks - big orange-red daisy flowers with a bright fringe of golden yellow.
You'll get colourful pots and borders quick smart, especially with some TLC with regular water and feeding.
They originate in the North American prairies so they don't mind poor soils and they're cold hardy too. Butterflies love them, and you will too for their fast growth and generous flowers.
We love Arizona Sun for the long flowering season, bright vivid colour, easy-going nature
