Gaillardia (Blanket Flower) is a blessing for harsh climates: incredibly hardy, this beautiful flower tolerates the light frost of winters as high as zone 3, but also thrives in very hot summers as low as zone 11! This native wildflower is easy to grow, brilliantly colored, offers a variety of sizes, and blooms all summer. The blooms can be single or double, boasting shades of yellow, orange, or red, but they all attract butterflies and make excellent cutflowers.
Everyone has a purpose in life - a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.
