Warm-toned native wildflowers that tolerate hot, dry sites
Gaillardia, also known as Blanket Flower and Indian Blanket, are some of the showiest native wildflowers we know. Sometimes called Firewheels, these daisy-shaped red flowers with bright yellow edges and reddish-brown center discs will add big color wherever you plant them. At 1-2’ tall, Gaillardia thrive in average to dry soils with exposure to full sun and can handle excessive summer heat gracefully. Gorgeous when planted in a mass group, or peppered throughout a meadow. Pollinator magnets.
