Large fiery orange red blossoms of Arizona Sun are tipped by a ring of rich flame yellow. Forms a neat mound of lance-shaped, grayish-green leaves. Near end of season, leave spent flower heads for seed to attract goldfinches. The common name of Gaillardia refers to the resemblance to brightly patterned Native American blankets - hence Blanket Flower. Extremely drought and heat tolerant, once established. From the early summer on, very showy banded flowers "blanket" this plant. The ends of the petals have a torn, ruffled appearance. Butterflies are drawn to it." width="553" height="65">
