Plant Features

Arizona Sun Gaillardia Plants produce absolutely dazzling blossoms in rich shades of brick red and yellow. Not only are the flower colors nothing short of incredible, each petal seems to have been dipped in the brightest yellow imaginable; the perfect finish to a portrait of the Arizona sun. This plant is known to thrive in poor, sandy soil. Blanket flowers offer non-stop blooms, thrive in full sun and poor soil conditions (must be well-drained), are drought-tolerant once established, salt-tolerant, and attract butterflies, bees, and wild birds when the seed head dries out. Pest resistant.

Gaillardia Companion Plants: Echinacea, Leucanthemum, Rudbeckia

Butterflies are flocking

I've made made gaillardia and milkweed the heart of my butterfly garden and these were flowering even before they were planted. All of the gaillardia and asclepias plants from Growjoy have been great.

These flowers are beautiful! They bloomed about a week after I received them! I have two in the backyard and one near our front door in full to partial sun.

I’m absolutely surprised and delighted with my geranium order. The plants arrived in pristine condition and once out into a pot seemed to immediately start growing! They look better each day. This reaction has been the same with every plant I’ve received from Grow Joy. I’m so very happy!

Arizona Sun Gaillardia Plant (Blanket Flower)

The deep reddish-orange petals on this Blanket Flower look so pretty with the bright yellow tips! It makes a beautiful contrast to the big yellow one planted next to it, and the two other ones from GrowJoy too! Nancy Gebhardt

Arizona Sun Gaillardia

If I could describe the Arizona Sun Gaillardia in a single word it would be showstopper! I've had the plants for less than two weeks now and every single one is blooming. I purchased seven Gaillardia and of the seven I've already had to deadhead four. Three, five, six blooms per plant! Absolutely amazing.

I am so excited to plant the Arizona Sun Gaillardia in my yard and have color all summer/early fall long!

From Robin | July 06, 2015

Strong and Healthy Arizona Sun Gaillardia

Vigorous on arrival, all the Gaillardia plants are thriving, producing vibrant Orange and Yellow blooms.

From Sharon | June 25, 2015

Great Gaillardia Plants

These plants arrived green, healthy, and ready to go into the ground. Not at all what you would expect from end of year plants. One negative...UPS shipping seems to be subpar when compared with USPS. This package arrived in pretty poor condition. The others, all USPS, have been fine. On the positive side, GrowJoy packaging is so good that the plants were in good shape, even though the box was smashed.

From anonymous | August 25, 2013

Gaillardia Plants-another success!

No other outlet I have used even comes close to the packing and shipping methods used by GrowJoy. Everything, as usual, received in top condition, with no transplant shock - only happy plants. I am extremely satisfied and happy with GrowJoy.
