Plant Description

Non-stop flowering throughout summer's heat and drought is what you get with Prairie Gaillardia. We grow them as annuals even though they often behave as biennials or short-lived perennials. In summer we do not water our native beds and remarkably, these plants are perhaps the showiest members in the collection during the dry 100 degree weather. The multitudes of yellow daisies with purplish centers just keep coming all growing season. Each spring we thin the seedlings, leaving a few strategically placed individuals.
