Description How to Grow Delivery
Commonly known as the Blanket Flower, and for good reason. These low, mounding, herbaceous perennials create seamless ground cover in beds and borders, flowering constantly throughout summer if deadheaded. Gaillardia ‘Spintops’ is a 3 colour mix of a particularly compact, bushy series. The bright flowers are so profuse that they virtually hide the foliage from view. The short-stemmed flowers are loved by pollinating insects. Hard working, low maintenance, and trouble-free! They even cope well on poor, dry soils. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Flowering Months
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.
