Description

INDIAN BLANKET (Gaillardia pulchella) is an American plains native flower that grows easily in most of the country (zones 3-10). Meriwether Lewis collected the first specimen of this wildflower on July 7, 1806 near the end of the Corps of Discovery journey across the new territories. The genus name Gaillardia honors an 18th century French botanist named Gaillard de Charentonneau. Easy to understand the common name - its glorious red and yellow pinwheel form reminds you of the colorful Native American weavings we all love and is easily identifiable. Stunning in meadow or decorative border. Grows up to 2 feet and blooms mid to late summer through fall. Attracts butterflies and resists deer. Short-lived perennial, so grow as annual. 100 seeds.

GROWING TIPS: Direct sow in late Spring, planting ¼” below the surface of the soil and compacting it slightly. Keep the soil evenly moist and at a temperature of 70-75 degrees F until germination, which widely varies from 20-70 days. Since these plants do not transplant well, they should be planted in peat pots if started indoors, then transferred, pot and all into the garden. Water the seedlings until they become established. Mature plants tolerate drought well, though watering in especially dry periods will improve the blooming. Excess moisture may result in root rot and other disease. Deadheading or cutting back the plant will also increase the blooms. This is a rather short-lived perennial that does not readily self-sow, so you will want to refresh your stands with new seed every few years.
