Common name: Blanket Flower
The compact, uniform mound of bright green foliage is covered in large 3-3.5 in blossoms from early summer into fall. The flowers are apricot with yellow tips and a darker orange center. Multiple rows of petals give the flowers a beautifully full appearance. This plant forms a tidy mound.
Easy to grow, heat tolerant and actually prefer to be grown in poorer soils. They get their name from the manner in which they used to blanket North American prairies with their blooms. They can still be found in fields and along roadsides in the prairie region and into the Rockies. Attract butterflies, and are deer resistant.
