Love these flowers Review by Allie - Dubuque, IA
Posted on 2014-04-10

I live in Iowa and I planted these last year in the spring. What beautiful flowers they are. They bloomed from early summer to the frost, and I loved all the color!

i am very pleased. I keep mine in a pot and move it to the south side of the house for winter. to my surprise when I moved it back on the porch i found about 15 little plants coming up around where the plant wintered. all the babies are doing great with very little care.

Better than expected Review by Kirsty - Orlando, FL
Posted on 2011-12-30

"I bought this and planted it in the spring and it flowered within a few weeks. I was expecting it to flower for a few weeks, as most perennials do but it flowered all summer, non stop and continued flowering through the fall and it is almost January and it is still flowering. My plant of 10x10in always has at least 5 flowers on it. I think you can even dead head it and plant those to make new plants. Really bright and striking blooms."

WONDERFUL WOW FACTOR! Review by Margaret - Arlington Heights, IL
Posted on 2011-08-31

"I took a chance on this one. When the flowers showed up at my home they were small, young, and I didn't think that they would bloom as full as the photo. my amazement, they did! Absolutely beautiful as a border. COLOR EVERYWHERE!!! I have a few spots in the border that need filling in for next year. Purchasing more Arizona Sun Gaillardia is already on my ""to buy more"" list for next spring."

Starts blooming and doesn't stop Review by Darla - Dayton, OH
Posted on 2011-02-25

"Ordered these last year and when I put them in the ground they didn't look like much, but as soon as the summer hit they took off and have beautiful flowers that each one would last a very long time and the plant it's self kept on blooming into the fall!! Ordering more Gaillardia's this year!"

Withstands Alabama heat! Review by Christie - Prattville, AL
Posted on 2010-06-22

This is one of the only perennials I've found that can actually withstand Alabama heat... even thrive in it! They required water every couple of days until they were established. Now they have tons of flowers on them and are a beautiful border plant for my garden. Everyone who lives in zone 8 and needs a full sun plant that can actually survive full sun in the South should buy these!

Pretty Review by Karen - Woodbridge, Va
Posted on 2010-06-15

"I bought 2 of these and 1 seems to be blooming real nice, a lot of blooms, but the other one is real slow and small, only saw one bloom, waiting for some more. hopefully next year both will do good...fingers crossed"

"I used to buy annulas every year to put in pots, but these are my new favorites. They are the perfect size and bloom like crazy."

PERFECT! Review by Amy Zeiler - Irwin, PA
Posted on 2009-08-24

"I put two of these in about June. They were two smal seedlings, but healthy...WOW, they are huge, flowers EVERYwhere all the time. Never require watering, don't fry in the full sun, grow like crazy. I am set on ordering MORE. May line my whole walkway with all three varieties of this wonderful plant. Rest assured, I am an absentminded gardener with a full time job and 4 teenage boys....I can't kill these plants. BEST thing I ever bought!!!!"

Cultivate Arizona Sun Gaillardia plants for perky red daisylike petals trimmed in golden yellow. The compact Gaillardia aristata grows up to 10 inches tall – a perfect size for containers and the front of borders. Commonly called blanket flower, gaillardia blooms for weeks from early to late summer. The perennial flowers thrive in full sun and well-drained soil.

Try Arizona Sun Gaillardia when you want a colorful low-maintenance perennial for a sunny landscape border. Plant Gaillardia aristata 12 to 15 inches apart in well-drained soil for best results, although the low-growing plant also can tolerate poor soil. This blanket flower features red and yellow pinwheel blooms with multiple petals and a prominent central disk. As a bonus, the perennial flowers attract butterflies for weeks each summer.
