Blanket flower is a wildflower but can also be grown in gardens as ornamentals. Blanket flowers have stunning large, daisy-like blooms that attract butterflies. They are very easy to grow and are drought tolerant. To many people blanket flowers are wildflowers but to others, they are a part of a butterfly garden, or a bright addition to a mixed flower garden.
This gaillardia variety has long-lasting blooms which grow up to 4 inches across. Bi-colored flowers include orange, red, and yellow. Flowers bloom from early summer to fall.
