blooming annual gaillardia

I started this annual from seed indoors last spring, and now they are showing off in my garden and vases!  So far each blossom has a two-tone color effect, making them very striking and interesting.  Butterflies also adore this flower!

Growing information:

Start indoors for earlier blooming, or sow outdoors after soil has warmed.

Grow in full sun, prefers adequate moisture.

Height:  20 inches

Bloom time:  Mid summer to fall
