Plant name: Gaillardia ‘Oranges and Lemons’
Virtues: It uniquely combines a breakthrough in color with an abundance of longer lasting blooms. The amount of flowers carried at any one time is striking. Indications show it to be more floriferous and longer flowering than any other blanketflower hybrid. In addition, it is drought and heat tolerant, attracts butterflies, and not normally browsed by deer.
Flowers: The 3-to 4-inch daisylike blooms bring luscious new color hues to the palette of these much-appreciated natives.
