With its vibrant, colourful flowers, the blanket flower is a no-brainer for those that want a plant that just adds a playful spirit to their garden! With their unique oak leaf-like foliage, the flowers atop tall stems are eye-catching and unique, reminiscent of the common daisy. The flowers also attract butterflies, which is ideal for the gardener hoping to make their home into a sanctuary. They are native to the southeastern U.S., Colorado, and Mexico- which gives them a bit of a tropical, southern touch to melt all your worries away. They form mounds of foliage and flowers, perfect to accent gardens or act as centrepieces.
They are easy to care for. These flowers need full sun, but they can do well in any kind of soil that is well-draining. They are drought-tolerant, and don’t like wet soil.
