Botanical Name

GAILLARDIA 'Dakota Reveille'

Plant Common Name

Blanketflower, Dakota Reveille Blanketflower

General Description

Grown for their spring-to-fall succession of large bright daisy-like blooms, blanket flowers are clump-forming, rangy, herbaceous perennials. The cultivar 'Dakota Reveille' bears "daisies" whose rays are double rather than single-petalled, giving a pompon effect. The yellow, burgundy-throated, trumpet-shaped rays are lime-green with red tips before opening. The solitary "daisies" perch on compact burgundy stems above hairy ovate grayish-green leaves.

Grow blanketflower in well-drained average soil in full sun. It tolerates considerable drought once established. Maintenance couldn’t be easier. Simply deadhead to promote continued blooming into fall, when plants should be pruned back severely. Blanketflower attracts bees, birds, and butterflies. Plant it singly as an accent or massed for maximum impact wherever you want long-lasting color. Try it in mixed borders or containers. It also makes a wonderful cut flower.
