Native to the plains and Western U.S., Blanket Flower adds vibrant, bold color to any sunny garden where it will deliver blooms for months. Famous for its cheeful color and extended bloom time, perennial Gaillardia is extremely easy to grow, attractive to pollinators and deer resistant. Growing less than two feet tall, Blanket Flower is great planted in the front of a meadow or wildflower garden. All of the seed we carry at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and guaranteed to grow.

Flowers of the perennial version of the gaillardia are a little larger than the annual—often up to 3 or 4 inches across, for a real spectacle of color. Effect is so bright, fine flower snobs in the English garden literature often are “shocked” by the “horrid” clashing colors. Not so in nature—a wildflower meadow takes on all colors and loves them all! Common names range from Blanket Flower to Indian Blanket (usually reserved for the annual version) and Firewheel. Seed is fluffy when gathered. See annual, G. pulchella.
