Availability: In Stock
'Goblin' is a first-year flowering perennial and compact-growing selection created by crossing native gaillardias. Butterflies love the bright red and yellow bicolored flowers that are continually produced from summer through frost. After the petals fall, the round, reddish-brown seed heads mix among the flowers for added interest and for bird forage. Plants look great even in the heat of summer when many other plants seem to fade. Long-lasting flowers are ideal for fresh bouquets. Also called blanket flower.

Exceeded my expectations!

I purchased these seeds in January for seeding late spring/early summer. Wow! One of the flower heads just opened. They are so much bigger than I imagined. They are beautiful. Bees are already enjoying it. I planted it for the bees and am so pleased with the results. This is why I get all my seeds from Botanical Interests.

If pollinators wrote reviews, this flower would have a bazillion 5-star reviews. I have two pollinator gardens, one in front and one out back, with a huge variety of pollinator-attracting flowers. This gaillardia is the most-visited flower by the highest diversity of insect pollinators in my whole garden. It's also just so darned photogenic!

Love botanical interests seeds! Great selection of seeds and excellent germination. These gaillardia plants were flowering from seed in just over 3 months. They can handle the heat and wind here in zone 8B Central Texas. Blooms for months!! Mine are actually still blooming now in mid Dec after a light freeze. Gorgeous flowers and loved by pollinators. Highly recommended.
