What Are Your ‘Tried & True’ Flowers?

What Are Your 'Tried & True' Flowers?

Blanket flower (Gaillardia pulchella) is one of my summer favorite flowers as a colorful perennial. Member of the sunflower family, it grows to about 2 x 2 ft. branching plant that feeds butterflies. Once established, Blanket flower is low maintenance and tolerant of dry, hot summers and is resistant to deer and rabbits in this location. Many varieties are available. I hope you will share about one of your favorite flowers below. If you would like to see favorite flowers picked by the National Gardening Bureau, here is a slide show of their 2014 selections: http://www.slideshare.net/NationalGardenBureau/2014-national-garden-bureaus-year-of-the-petunia
