Blanket Flower (Gaillardia spp.)

The blanket flower forms attractive, one to two foot rounded clumps. These plants have wiry, branched stems with lanceolate to linear leaves.  Two to three inch wide daisy-like, single, semi-double, or double flowers are held on long stems above the foliage. Appearing throughout the summer, the flowers bloom in yellow, orange, red, or bicolor.
