This is a trial plant from Skagit Gardens. I’ve never grown Gaillardias before. I have Commotion Tizzy and Commotion Frenzy, and I have to look at the tags to tell them apart.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.

This looks like something hummingbirds would like. I’ve always wanted to grow gaillardias but haven’t yet. Maybe next year as I have the seeds I bought this year – lol.
