Gaillardia aristata 'Tokajer'

Blanket flower

Just as jolly as the variety 'Burgundy' but this time bearing masses of huge 10cm flowers with mango - orange petals with their tips dipped in peach. 

The centre is a rich raspberry colour. Each petal has a textured ruffled edge. The blue-green leaves are narrow and lance shaped. 

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.
