Family

Asteraceae

Botanical Name

GAILLARDIA aristata 'Sunburst Burgundy Picotee'( SUNBURST SERIES)

Plant Common Name

Common Blanketflower

General Description

The large dusty red daisies of ‘Burgundy Halo’ have petals that are tipped with a thin band of yellow. Like the other blanketflowers in the Sunburst series, Burgundy Halo is a compact plant that blooms continuously from spring through fall. Deadheading spent flowers encourages continued blooming and keeps the plants tidy.

Given a sunny location in average or rich soil, these perennials will thrive. Like all blanketflowers they do well in heat and will tolerate drought once established.

The compact ‘Burgundy Halo’ will add bright, consistent color to any flower garden or container.
