Arizona Apricot Blanket Flower

Gaillardia aristata 'Arizona Apricot'

SKU
40288
Reliable, continuous color for sunny borders, rock gardens, and patio containers. Masses of big, fiery orange flowers edged with a blaze of yellow, that softens as they age. Lovely in cut bouquets, and if left to seed, the spent flower heads attract goldfinches. A heat and drought tolerant, herbaceous perennial.
