A 2005 All-America Selection® and a 2005 Fleuroselect Gold Medal winner, Gaillardia ‘Arizona Sun’ is worth the attention. This petite perennial grows in a low, 1’ tall by 2’ wide mound and produces masses of stunning red flowers with a ring of golden-yellow. The large blooms attract butterflies and birds. Deadhead the flowers to keep them blooming from summer to fall. Most Gaillardia commonly found in modern gardens are hybrids of Gaillardia x Grandiflora, a cross between Gaillardia pulchella, a native of the southeastern U.S. and Mexico, and the prairie-dwelling Gaillardia aristata. The low, bright-green foliage spreads along the ground like a blanket. Deer resistant and drought tolerant, plant Gaillardia ‘Arizona Sun’ in full sun and provide low water once established.
