DescriptionSizzling Colour for your Summer Garden
Summer is the perfect time for bold colour, but it does present its share of challenges. Hot, dry weather and more hours of sunshine can be hard on some garden plants. However, Breck's Sunny Gaillardias are a perfect solution for easycare colour in the dog days of summer. Famous for its long bloom time, our Sunny Gaillardia Collection features six vibrant varieties that will heat up your garden from summer to fall.
Set your Garden Ablaze!
Gaillardias are the petite cousins of sunflowers—exhibiting the same sizzling colours and sunny personality, while fitting nicely into smaller spaces. Hardy in zones 3-10, Breck's Sunny Gaillardia Collection will fill your garden with brilliant colour with little to no care. Each variety is tolerant of heat and drought, resistant to disease, and can thrive even in poor soil. All they ask for is plenty of sun.
Gaillardias are famous for their long bloom time, starting in summer and going right into fall. Heights range from 8-30", so you have endless options for borders, containers and cut-flower arrangements. And don't worry about garden pests. These varieties seldom attract the attention of deer or rabbits, though butterflies love them.
A Stunning Addition to your Summer Garden:
• Longest-blooming perennial
• Easy care; heat and drought tolerant
• Grows well even in poor soil
• Deer and rabbit resistant
• Perfect in borders and pots
