Previously known as 'Goblin'. Flamboyant daisies from North America that stand out well in a summer border, most gaillardias have yellow tips to their petals, forming a shaggy ring round the red flowers and giving them a striking 'zoned' appearance. At the peak of flowering, in mid to late summer, the flowers can almost hide the soft, sticky, faintly aromatic foliage. Well- drained conditions are essential, plants tending to be rather short lived in normal garden soil - poor, impoverished sandy or gravelly soil suits them best. Cutting plants back after flowering helps to prolong their lives.

I have the "Arizona" variety. It's colours are a dramatic addition to the Echinacea and Penstemon in my garden. All my family admire it.
