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.
