Blanket Flowers are valuable for their very long season of bloom. They form a low mound of light-green leaves, bearing upright stems of large daisy-like flowers. This new midsized selection flowers the first year and features non-fading, dark red petals. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil, especially if it remains wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming.
