Gaillardia aristata 'Arizona Red Shades'

Extended Bloom Season and Sophisticated Colorway

Improving on a beloved native wildflower can be a little tricky. You want growers to keep the best of the original, but use their expertise to 'soup it up' for even more of the best characteristics you love so much.

Arizona Red Shades Blanket Flower (Gaillardia aristata x 'Arizona Red Shades') is improved to perfection. Talk about souped up! Clear, tomato red blossoms deepen in the center, and then are touched with a hint of cheddary yellow at the very tips as a perfect spice. This delicious combination feels a bit more upscale and modern compared to the species.

Think about the difference this way. You could choose to open up a red and white can for plain old, hum-drum tomato soup - or you could visit a gourmet restaurant for a fresh and fabulous version. It's the same kind of soup, but a lot more... yummy!

As always, Blanket Flower is a native, drought-tolerant plant perfect for xeriscaped properties. Huge, lush blooms are liberally sprinkled across the entire plant from late spring to early fall. Butterflies love it!

If you want to make a statement - use this compact plant to flank either side of a wide, rustic doorway. Use as a low hedge for unbeatable summer color. Best of all, it absolutely thrives in hot, sunny sites with poor soil.

This improved selection will sell out quickly, don't miss it!
