Steve Asbell added this to Great Design Plant: Blanket Flower Brings Year-Round Cheer
To make matters even more complicated, blanket flower selections come in a multitude of colors and patterns, blurring the lines between red and yellow in endless ways. Some, such as 'Fanfare', have tightly rolled burgundy petals that flare out at the tips in an explosion of bright golden color. 'Arizona Apricot' (Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Arizona Apricot', zones 3 to 10) appears to have sunsets painted on its petals in a soft gradation from orange to yellow, looking much lighter and subdued than the more-flamboyant selections. Other cultivars are notable for their habits. 'Goblin' (Gaillardia x grandiflora 'Goblin', zones 3 to 10) is a dwarf selection with a tidy form and tight clusters of blooms on short stems, but its fat petals of red and orange are anything but small.
