Arrived as a strong healthy plant, Planted in a new north facing bed in poorly draining clay soil. Looked happy and long blooming - still in flower in October. Has grown wel, looks healthy and hopefully will come back next year, but it is in a terrible position!
Gaillardia 'Mesa Yellow'
- Cheerful yellow flowers all summer
- Great in cut flower arrangements
- Cut back to 6" late summer for new growth that will overwinter
Gaillardia 'Mesa Yellow' brings a refreshing burst of color to the garden with its bright yellow blooms. Flowers appear in early summer to late summer and are followed by attractive globe-shaped seed heads. Deadheading will help to encorage a longer bloom time. It has great garden performance, tolerating a wide range of conditions once established, as long as it has well draining soil. 2010 All-America Selections award winner. Gaillardia are native to the western U.S.
