A low growing (18") wildflower with a long-lasting bloom of striking yellow and red flowers. This annual produces flowers early in the first year, and in warmer climates will re-seed. It will grow happily for a season and bloom eagerly in northern climates as well. Pollinators love the red and yellow flowers, and birds enjoy the bounty of seeds. A bright US native wildflower for pollinator and habitat gardens. Similar to the perennial, Gaillardia aristata, this species will produce blooms the first year, where you'll have to wait a year for flowers from the perennial. Plant outdoors Spring. Seeds will germinate when conditions are optimal. In good conditions, flowers appear the first year. DETAILED INFORMATION: An annual that likes full sun and being well-drained (moderate water requirement). Sow 12-24 inches apart. Zone 3-9. ABOUT SEED BALLS: Seed balls (seed bombs) are 1/2-inch balls of dried soil and seeds. Essentially, they are pre-planted seeds. They are great for no-till gardening and beautifying neglected landscapes. Sow by pressing the seed ball halfway into the surrounding soil. Plant in habitats in need of biodiversity. Non-GMO. Pesticide free. A seed ball protects seeds from erosion, foraging, and harsh conditions. This protective property often results in higher but slower germination rates.
