Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
GAILLARDIA aristata( SUNBURST SERIES)
Common Blanketflower, Sunburst Blanketflower
Grown for their spring-to-fall succession of large bright daisy-like blooms, blanket flowers are clump-forming, rangy, herbaceous perennials native to central North America. Comprising five cultivars, the Sunburst Series has been bred for profuse flowering and more compact plants that do not need staking. Borne singly on relatively short stems, the flowers come in various shades and combinations of yellow and burgundy. The large, hairy, broadly lance-shaped leaves are often lobed.
Given a sunny location in good well-drained soil, these perennials add summer-long color to a perennial border. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage blooming and keep the plants tidy. Cut plants back severely in early fall. Blanketflowers make good cut flowers.
