Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Blanket Flower Seed
Blanket FlowerGaillardia 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.
