    Huge Flowers – up to 4 Inches! – on a Small, Neat Plant!

    Blanketed in Bloom from Early Summer to Early Fall
    Compact, Neat Habit Looks Great as an Edging – or Anywhere Else!
    Intriguing Cones Keep the Color Going Even after Blooming is Over
    So Outstanding, It Has Won Awards in the U.S. AND in Europe!
    Splendid Red Cartwheels Literally Cover the Plant!
    One small 12-inch plant can produce hundreds of blooms over the course of the summer! You’ll hardly see the foliage, but you certainly will enjoy the unusually large 3½-4 inch blooms with their rich, deep red petals that occasionally sport tiny yellow tips. Butterflies will enjoy them, too, for Gaillardia is a top attractant for them, especially if planted in a group so they can find them easily. And when it’s hot and dry, this little beauty actually grows stronger and performs its best!
    Blooms All Summer, and Colorful Cones Extend the Interest
    This little bloom machine starts opening its large blooms in early summer and keeps growing new ones on into the fall. As the petals fall, the cones become more prominent, and they are as beautiful as the flowers themselves! Rounded and filled with needle-like seed pods, they are yellow and deep maroon when the flower opens, and become green with spikey maroon tips as they mature. They’ll keep the plant interesting long after blooming is done, and will provide a feast for small songbirds in the fall and early winter. Luckily, this plant does not appeal to deer or rabbits.
    So Neat and Compact, It Looks Like You Trim It!
    Only 12 inches high and a little broader, Arizona Red Shades is so compact and uniform, it’ll look like you regularly trim it!  Its small stature and neat habit looks great around the edge of a bed, and it provides a nice finish when planted at the base of a Clematis vine or between taller perennials. 
    Growing Tips:
    Plant in full sun in a very well-drained soil. Wet feet in winter is a killer – literally! It’s a good choice for the edge of a raised bed (its small size and uniform height make it a good edger) or a sloped area. Otherwise, nothing is easier to grow! It grows in most soils, even a poor sandy one, and is unfazed by heat, drought, humidity, or really cold winters. If you prefer flowers to cones, remove the blooms when spent to encourage more flowers.
