Arizona Red Shades Gaillardia Plant (Blanket Flower)

Wow! What a beautiful deep red this Blanket Flower is. The centers are golden with deep brown rings encircling them, making them stand out. I planted them with a grouping of three other Gaillardias of contrasting colors, also from GrowJoy. I love their wonderful, healthy plants! Nancy Gebhardt

Excellent Product

I am extremely pleased with these Gaillardia plants. They arrived on time, moist, and in great shape. The packaging was exceptional. I put them right into the ground and they seemed to establish within a day. I am expecting blooms in June. If you want a good Gaillardia, this is the place to get it.

great sturdy plants

These little guys are tough as nails. I planted 5 in an un-watered (sahara) part of my garden and didn't lose any. They also multiplied like mad, so am looking forward to spring.
