Details

Gaillardia 'Mesa Bright Bicolor' is a first year-flowering perennial with early-flowering and well-branched plants. The bright yellow flowers have a red band that varies in width depending on environmental conditions. Blnket Flowers are heat tolerant and actually prefer to be grown in poorer soils. They get their name from the manner in which they used to blanket North American prairies with their blooms. They can still be found in fields and along roadsides in the prairie region and into the Rockies.
