How to Choose the Best Perennial

And here it is:















This perennial is called a Gaillardia. The common name is Arizona Sun. I have been pleasantly surprised by it. We bought two from Lowe's last summer and they stayed green throughout the winter here and then promptly began blooming in April of this year. This year both plants are three times their purchase size. I'm thinking I need about 4 or 5 more to complete my front border. I really like this! I have not seen them at Lowe's so far this year. I'm going to keep checking back though and if I can't find them Burpee carries them online.
