Bands Of Brilliance

The fiesta of colour that is blanket flower (Gaillardia) has begun!  The gentle grey-green foliage is loaded with blooms and buds, and more buds to come that will carry right into frosty fall.  This feisty perennial is often short lived, but randomly and socially self-seeds to weave its bands of brilliance through the garden.  It even pops up from hardened soil between stepping stones.  With circles of fierce red to coral to orange and golden yellow, these sun-loving hot blooms add flare and sensation!  Read more about Gaillardia by clicking here
