Free-flowering, Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Goblin' (Blanket Flower) is a bushy, often short-lived herbaceous perennial with scarlet-red flowers adorned with fringed yellow tips and a reddish-brown cone. Blooming from early summer into fall, the daisy-like flowers provide continuous color in the garden or containers. Their round, reddish-brown seed heads further extend the interest after the flowers are spent. Rich of nectar, the flowers are real magnets for butterflies. Drought and heat tolerant, this Blanket Flower requires little care once established.
