Plant Information

12" tall x 12" wide. Arizona Apricot Blanket Flower is an easy-keeper, drought tolerant (once established), many-flowered champion of the summer garden. Compact in form, site this eye-catching bloomer along a path, in a garden border or nestled among some of the larger summer flowers. ‘Apricot Blanket’ opens with luscious, apricot flowers that first appear in early summer and can continue into fall. Keep them deadheaded to encourage new blooms. Plant in a full sun location in well-drained soil. While butterflies and hummingbirds love Gallardia, deer and rabbits stay away. How perfect is that? The spent flowers attract Goldfinches, so leave some up for the birds too, especially at season’s end. Plant them with Lavender, Yarrow, Hummingbird Mint and Russian Sage.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
