Cause a frenzy in the garden!


Cause a frenzy in your garden by planting the vibrant and lively gaillardia family.

Gaillardia ‘Arizona Sun’ makes an exciting flower border. Not ever border of your garden needs to be a short plant—Bring one of your tall flowers to front for just a short bit then continue on with smaller ones–it just adds a lot of character. The above photo is from my gardens in 2009.

There are quite a few gaillardia to choose from. I also grow Frenzy and Tizzy.
