Gaillardia aristata

Short, compact, uniform plants with large 3-inch flowers and several layers of long, pointed petals. For your sunny border and best containers. Makes a great companion to Echinacea, Rudbeckia, and other natives. Needs deadheading to improve appearance.

This heat and drought tolerant perennial with compact habit creates great impact along borders. Reliably produces large, fiery-red flowers edged with a ring of vivid yellow over a long bloom season. Spent flower heads attract goldfinches. Herbaceous.
