  • 1450

Attract bees, butterflies, and birds to your backyard with Indian Blanketflower (Gaillardia pulchella). A low growing (~18") wildflower with a long-lasting bloom of striking yellow and red flowers. This annual produces flowers early in the first year, and in warmer climates will re-seed. It will grow happily for a season and bloom eagerly in northern climates as well. Pollinators love the red and yellow flowers, and birds enjoy the bounty of seeds. A bright US native wildflower for pollinator and habitat gardens.

Similar to the perennial, Gaillardia aristata, this species will produce blooms the first year, where you'll have to wait a year for flowers from the perennial.

Seed balls (seed bombs) are 1/2-inch balls of dried soil and seeds. Essentially, they are pre-planted seeds. They are great for no-till gardening and beautifying neglected landscapes. Sow by pressing the seed ball halfway into the surrounding soil. Plant in habitats in need of biodiversity. Non-GMO. Pesticide free.

A seed ball protects seeds from erosion, foraging, and harsh conditions. This protective property often results in higher but slower germination rates. Please be patient with your seed balls. Placed in the appropriate soil and climate, they will grow.
