If you're like us, you've tried many different gaillardias through the years, but we are pleased to introduce in 2019, the star of 30 years of trials. Gaillardia 'Glitz 'n Glamour' is a seed strain with incredible flower power that came to us via Wade Roitsch of the now shuttered Yucca Do Nursery, who found this growing wild in Austin County, Texas. Gaillardia 'Glitz 'n Glamour' forms a 26" tall x 4' wide patch of stems that start flowering for us in May and continue to be smothered in 3" wide pure yellow flowers until frost...a true bee and butterfly magnet. We usually kill blanket flowers in our wet, humid summers, but this drought-loving Gaillardia aestivalis selection even sailed through our 2018 wettest year on record, however, we still recommend planting it in a very sunny location with excellent drainage.
