This flower has been blooming in my pollinator garden for about three weeks now. I believe this is some variety of Gaillardia, but it’s totally different in color and size from the “Blanket Flower” I have.
This reaches 2′ in height, where the Blanket Flower is only about 6″. Coloring on the Blanket Flower is deep red in the center, a wide band of lighter red (dark pink) that stretches all the way to yellow tips on the petals.
If you can identify this variety please let me know. Thanks.
