A Northern American variety from the Sunflower family known as the common blanket flower. These sunny flowers produce a deep red ray floret fringed bright yellow that surround a purple-brown centre. The hardy compact perennials are easy to grow and will attract pollinators such as bees into the garden. Highly resilient, they have a great naturalising potential and prefer to be planted in sunny areas of the garden where they will thrive but can also tolerate partially shaded areas. Ideal for planting in the front of borders or patio containers, they will reach a mature height of 30cm. Or add interest and colour into the home by using these wonderful flowers for bouquets. UK-grown 5cm module plants supplied.
