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 its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.

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.
