Spintop Yellow Touch Blanket Flower

This is a must-have where colour and consistent blooming are prized. Daisy-type flowers have flat orange-red petals dipped in yellow, and stems are short above a compact habit with light green leaves. The name ‘blanket flower’ comes from the fact that these plants used to “blanket” the North American prairies. So go ahead and blanket your beds and borders in continuous colour all season long! Plants can triple in size within a single growing season, but avoid overfertilization, which simply speeds up maturation and aging. Plant in well-drained soil; once established, plants are fairly drought-resistant. Flowers are excellent cut and plants are equally successful grown in containers. Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
