Gaillardia X Grandiflora 'Goblin'
This selection forms a low mound of olive-green leaves with masses of gorgeous scarlet-red flowers adorned with fringed yellow tips and a reddish-brown cone. Can be used as annual bedding, or year after year as a perennial. Excellent for beds and borders; often flowering the first year from seed. Outstanding for edging, borders, rock gardens or containers, the flowers are attractive to butterflies, and also excellent for cutting. Plants should be divided in early spring every 2 to 3 years. These will not tolerate wet, heavy clay soil, particularly in the winter.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
