Talk about a tough plant! Arizona Sun Blanket Flower,Gaillardia 'Arizona Sun', is a super-hardy plant that grows and blooms in even the hottest, driest conditions in your garden. Just like you’d expect from a plant with such a southwestern name, Arizona Sun loves sandy soil and hot sun and will reward you with drought-tolerant flowering all summer long.
Both an All-American and Fleuroselect Gold Medal winner, Arizona Sun is sure to be a standout in your garden. How could it not be, with the richly colored flowers filling in those hot gaps in your borders and containers? Deep red centers with a sundrop yellow ring around the edge pop against the silver green leaves.
Arizona Sun Gaillardia blooms profusely, even in its first year. It forms a low, compact mound that is covered in the daisy flowers from June to autumn.
Besides the hot color, Arizona Sun animates your garden by bringing in butterflies and other pollinators that love the profusion of flowers you get on each plant. Drought tolerant once established. Gaillardia aren’t the best choice for heavy clay soil that will stay wet through the winter, though.
Plant these with spiky red and yellow flowers, like kniphofia, and watch your garden dazzle all summer long.
