Gaillardia aristata – blanketflower

This memorable flower is a workhorse.  With golden petals surrounding a deep red center, this charmer grows well on disturbed sites and attracts beautiful solitary bees and birds.  Its foliage is deer-resistant and it spreads well once established.  It will tolerate extra water and some shade, especially if the soils are well-drained.  (perennial / plant fall, winter, or spring)
