Gaillardia x grandiflora (hybrid)

Item #1274

A gaillardia with brilliant color, and ability to bloom the first year from seed! 3-inch, daisy-like flowers that blossom through the summer are perfect for cut flower bouquets. The drought tolerant, neat, mounding plants have sturdy stems, recover nicely from adverse conditions such as wind and rain, and are loved by bees and butterflies!
