Gaillardia Goblin Seeds

Gaillardia grandiflora

Item #1127

Perennial. A star performer! Goblin is a first-year flowering perennial and compact-growing selection of the native Gaillardia, also called blanket flower. 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. Plants look great even in the heat of summer when many other plants seem to fade. Long lasting flowers are ideal for fresh bouquets. Perennial in USDA zones 3 to 10. Deer resistant.
