Gaillardia, also known as the Blanket Flower is a critical perennial flower for the Dakota Skipper, an endangered North American butterfly. Gaillardia are known for their concentric circles of colors on their petals that serve as a bullseye for pollinators. If deadheaded appropriately, these flowers will bloom from Spring to Fall, making them a staple of professional gardens everywhere.
Natively, Gaillardia are found primarily to the west of the Mississippi River. They're pretty adaptable to soil conditions and are fairly low maintenance.
