I could have sworn I ordered Gaillardia Burgundy,from Burpee.
In fact,I have the seed packet to prove it…..
But when they bloomed I got Gaillardia Punch Bowl…..
Not that I’m complaining,mind you.
Don’t get me wrong.I love this flower!
I love the play of the burgundy/lavender against the white frilly edges.And it performs just like the old-fashioned Blanket Flower.
”Nope,I don’t need any water.I’m fine…”
“Go ahead-step on me.I don’t care.”
“I am Gaillardia,hear me roar.”
…I’m considering this a happy accident….
Not that I don’t love old fashioned Gaillardia.
It grows without asking anything from me…
...dontcha just love a not-so-needy plant….?
But I wanted Gaillardia Burgundy.
Back to the catalogue……
