Blanket Flower (with butterfly).

Blanket Flowers are native to much of the US and bloom most of the summer, until pretty late in the fall. Many varieties available. Height is 1 to 2.5 feet. Likes full sun and attracts butterflies until late in the fall.


Where to buy Blanket Flower

I highly recommend Nature Hills Nursery. Their perennials cost a bit more but they are grown in 4'' x 6'' air-pruned pots that results in healthier plants with a highly developed root mass! The price is reduced however, if you buy more plants. Nature Hills also has a free plant and seed catalog that they will mail out to you.



They are currently selling two varieties of Gaillardia - you can read more about them on the Nature Hills Nursery site to either order, read more information about these plants or see more detailed pricing information. Or order by calling 1-888-864-7663 using the Source ID: 86642:
Kobold - (Gaillardia x Goblin)
Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Burgundy'


The Aster Family

Blanket Flower is a member of the Aster Family. These are herbs, shrubs, vines or sometimes even trees. There are 20,000 different species in the Aster family, made up from 1100 genera. Well known members of this family include Sunflowers, Zinnias, safflower and many kinds of lettuce.
