Cold Hardy to Zone 4

Gaillardia 'Spintop Red Starburst', a blanket flower, is a perennial offering late spring through fall interest. Long and heavy blooming, the plant blankets itself non-stop in bold, daisy-esque yellow flowers with a large red eye. Borne in clusters atop hairy stems, the nectar-rich flowers are a pollinator favorite, attracting tons of bees and butterflies. And birds, especially goldfinches, adore the seed heads. The flowers make nice cuts for fresh and dried arrangements.

An herbaceous plant, Gaillardia 'Spintop Red Starburst' has a uniform, well-branched, and mounded habit and a medium growth rate. The compact plant is a great option for patio pots, edging, the front of traditional perennial borders, and mixed beds, including in xeriscapes and rock and water-wise gardens. It's also perfect for mass planting in prairies and meadows.

Easy care and cold hardy, blanket flower prefers full sun and organically rich, moist, well-drained soil. It tolerates drought but not heavy clay soils. The plant is heat tolerant and deer resistant. Deadheading spent flowers encourages additional blooms.

A native plant, Gaillardia 'Spintop Red Starburst' is indigenous to North America, from North Dakota to Colorado west to California and British Columbia. Native plants are not only beautiful but also environmentally friendly. Naturally adapted to the climate and soil conditions of the region, they thrive without fertilizers or extra watering, once established. They also act as natural pest controls, reducing the need for pesticides in the garden. Landscaping with native plants promotes biodiversity and provides shelter and quality food for wildlife and pollinators, bringing gardens to life.
