#ProPlantTips for Care:

Give Gaillardia a spot in full sun, where the soil drains quickly after a rain. They won't tolerate wet heavy clay soils or areas that might be wet in winter. Once their roots are established, they'll become a durable, Waterwise addition to a Xeric landscape. Thriving in average to low fertility and almost any type of well-drained soil. Gaillardia self-seeds, so deadhead after the blooms fade is recommended, and to encourage a rebloom, but if you miss a few in the fall - the songbirds will help themselves to the snack. Prune back in late fall once the foliage begins to yellow.

  • Loves Full Sun
  • Well-Drained Average Soil & Moderate Moisture
