Blanket Flower Gaillardia Aristata
Approx. 300 seeds per pkg or 1 gram.
Blanketflower can be directly seeded into your flower garden, or seeded indoors for transplanting later. If you reside in a warmer climate, you can plant them in the fall, and they will most likely bloom the first spring. For colder areas, expect a bloom in the second spring. Needs full sun.
Sow Blanketflower seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/8" of fine garden or potting soil. Or, broadcast spread them over an area, and lightly rake them into the soil. Ideal plant spacing is 14" -16". Thin or transplant seedlings, if needed, when they reach 2". They will tolerate a little crowding. Perfect for the lazy gardener, once established, these are hardy plants!
Makes a great cut arrangement. We put them in antique blue Philips Magnesia bottles because their colors pop against the blue glass.
