Gaillardia pulchella

Indian blanket

Gaillardia pulchella is a colorful flower native to the south, with Louisiana being the eastern limit of its native range. It is naturally found in sandy soils along the coast. It grows best in full sun to part shade sites with dry, well drained soils. This plant grows up to two feet tall, and dies back in the winter. Yellow and maroon flowers bloom in the summer and attract pollinators. Birds eat the seeds in the fall. Gaillardia pulchella works well for stormwater control plantings, or in a rain garden.
