Gaillardia-Blanket Flower

Propagating Gaillardia can be done by root division in early spring after the plant starts growing from its winter dormant stage, deciduous, and grows to 2-3' in height and likes a well drained soil but will tolerate drought once the plants are established in full sun. The blooms of Gaillardia are multicolored of yellow, red and orange and appear in the early summer and will bloom up until frost if deadheaded. Butterflies are attracted to its blooms. Deer and rabbit generally ignore the plant.
