We have added Blanketflower 'Burgundy' (Gaillardia Grandiflora), Blanket Flower (Gaillardia 'Goblin') and a third Gaillardia (I can't find the tag, but I think that it was Arizona Sun) to one of our front garden beds.

Marian Name: Virgin's Face

Blanket Flower 'Burgundy' (Gaillardia Grandiflora)

Description: Perennial. Large daisylike flowers bloom June to August and attract butterflies to the garden. Makes an excellent cut flower. Prefers well-drained soil. Grows 18-30 inches tall.

Update: I moved this flower to a garden bed that is closer to the house. I like the flowers, but not the scraggly look. Ours grew to be about 30" tall last year.

Gaillardia 'Goblin'

Description: A dwarf variety bearing flowers with red petals and yellow edges. Grows to a height of 12" and width of 18".  Blooms June to September.
