Gaillardia aristata 'Tokaja'

Blanket flower

A bright and cheerful plant bearing masses of huge ruffled flowers bearing mango-orange petals with their tips dipped in peach. 

The centre is a rich raspberry colour. The blue-green leaves are the perfect foil for such exuberance. 

They look wonderful in tubs or pots and just flower all summer long. Excellent as cut flowers. Very easy, unfussy plants that only need to be cut down to 10cm in autumn to encourage strong basal growth for the following year. 

Any soil except heavy clay.
