Classic Perennials at Gorge Top Gardens: Gaillardia

Classic Perennial - GaillardiaYou have to look a long time to find a better performing plant than Gaillardia. Extremely easy to grow plants that explode with vibrant flowers in early summer and don't let up until the first hard frost. Gaillardia is one of the top drought resistant perennials we grow, brushing off heat and drought with out any signs of stress. Plants range in heights from 1 foot to 3 feet depending upon variety and flowers range in the yellows, oranges and reds. Plants require full sun and a well drained soil. While the plants are not extremely fussy about soil types they will grow their best when planted in soil that is loose and drains well. Since this perennial prefers poor soils do not add compost or manure to the bed. Watering is usually only needed in the fist  45 - 60 days of planting, after that these tough plants can shrug off dry spells. Feed Gaillardia in early spring with a light top dressing of Bone Meal.  After the early spring feeding no more fertilizer should be needed. To promote heavy flowering all faded flowers should be removed. Taller varieties such as Burgundy sometimes need staking to prevent heavy rains from weighing them over. Gaillardia grows easily from seed so you may want to let a few flower heads set seed and harvest for spring plantings.
