Gaillardia pulchella Annual. This cultivar of a native flower has been around more than a century under different names, but it's a new discovery for us. The 2-3” quilled florets bloom in an array of red and golden hues on a 1x1’ mounded plant. Quite the showstopper, Lorenziana got top ratings for its masses of blooms over a long period of time in Florida trials. In central Maine trials, too. The genus is salt tolerant, drought tolerant, deer proof, and—in the words of a Florida themepark director—"butt hardy," meaning it can bounce back after people sit on it. Besides people, it also attracts bees, butterflies, and birds. Good cutflower. Full sun.
