        Disappointed at the long wait to get to the just-now blooming stage. Expected much earlier results. Hoping to enjoy before now.

                      I LOVE this variety of Gailardia. Even though it's supposedly an annual, it behaves like a perennial here close to the California Coast. Even with the frost we've been having in December and January, the stuff continues to bloom and thrive. It blooms all year around! The same plants have been thriving for three years in a row now. I do prune them back once a year (usually Fall) so they maintain their compactness. I also like how they reseed themselves, and collect some of the seeds to sow and establish in other areas. Note: They look great and contrast well with blue or purple flowering plants (lupine, sage, etc.) but also go well with California Poppies.

                        I live at the beach in Southeast Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay. I planted these in what is little more than sand and was suprised how well they grew, considering the poor "soil" and very dry conditions. The Ox-Eye daises do great too, quite a show in the spring all along the seawall!

                        Planted in Florida. First year, nothing. Very disappointed. HOWEVER, they're coming up in Spring of the 2nd year and they are gorgeous! What a beautiful surprise.
