More Information About Gaillardia

Gaillardia is a genus of US dryland short-lived natives that is valued for its intense summer color and drought tolerance. If you've got a hot, well-drained site, you'll enjoy some of the special Gaillardia selections we have to offer. The common name 'blanket flower' was given due to the flower's resemblance to brightly colored Native American blankets.

Although many Gaillardia species are ornamental, most of the garden varieties are hybrids whose parents are Gaillardia aristata, aestivalis, and Gaillardia pulchella. The brightly colored flowers attract butterflies to the garden. When you are ready to buy gaillardia for your sunny garden, check out our online offering of gaillardia for sale.
