What are the pros? Gorgeous diverse colors!
What are the cons? Low germination rate.
My new favorite Gallairdia! I wish I had ordered more packets! Hands down, the most beautiful and diversely colored Gaillardia I have ever grown! A little later to get started blooming than the other types of Gaillardia, but oh so beautiful! Will just start the seeds earlier next year, as I think they may enjoy a bit of cold stratification in late winter to early spring. I started these seeds indoors, then planted out after the last frost. Not every seed germinated, but the few that did produced outstanding plants. (Many native wildflowers similarly have naturally low germination rates). I'm an OLD native Floridian and this cultivar reminds me most of the "wild" Gaillardia flower form I remember from my childhood on Florida's barrier island beaches. They have a more compact form and are not as rangy or sprawling as some of the other types of Gaillardia and the hybrids so widely sold on the internet that tend to "run over" their garden companions. Love them, and will order again
