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.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

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.
