Indian Blanket (Gaillardia pulchella) Wildflower Perennial Seeds
40 seeds per package
Non-GMO, Open Pollinated

Easy to grow from flower seeds, the Indian Blanket wildflower was approved as Oklahoma's official state wildflower in 1986. It is a beauty that should be in every wildflower garden with its large, showy flowers that reach 2 - 3 inches in diameter and begin to bloom in May and usually continue until September. Indian Blanket flowers are grown easily from wild flower seeds.

The seeds can be directly seeded into your wild flower garden. Plant Indian Blanket seeds early in the season and cover lightly with 1/8 inch of fine garden or potting soil. Or, broadcast spread them over an area, and lightly rake the Gaillardia seed into the soil.

Gaillardia wildflower seed should be planted where it will get lots of sun. They can tolerate some drought after being established, but flower best when kept evenly moist. ***They also do well in containers and window boxes.

If you want to keep the wildflower blooming longer and looking nicer, deadheading is important. Let a few of the flowers go to seed to encourage seed distribution in late fall. The fallen wild flower seed will sprout and bloom the following spring.
