Enjoy the vibrant flowers of Gaillardia 'Arizona Sun' from late spring. These boldly coloured Blanket flowers are drought tolerant, thriving in hot, dry summers and coastal positions as well as cooler conditions - so you can be sure of a superb display whatever the weather. The large red blooms each sport a contrasting bright yellow margin that makes them stand out from the compact clumps of bushy foliage. Easy to grow and trouble free, this hardy perennial will re-grow and bloom year after year - ideal for filling gaps in patio containers and the front of borders. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 45cm (18"). Supplied as plugtray plants.

Pot up blanket flower plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When they are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into their final positions in borders and containers. Grow gaillardia plants in any fertile, well drained soil in full sun.
Feed and water blanket flower plants until they are fully established. Once established gaillardia copes well with dry soils and is reasonable drought tolerant. Regular deadheading of faded gaillardia flowers will encourage more blooms to be produced. In late summer, cut back old foliage and flower stems to 15cm (6") to encourage basal growth before the first frosts. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of blanket flower in spring, and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
