One of the easiest flowers to sow from seed, Blanketflower comes to life with bright crimson red blooms that are tipped in sunny yellow and at the center, a brilliant red cone. Blanketflower grows to 2 feet in height and with the red and yellow vibrancy will make an exceptional border or backdrop plant. This plant is also perfect for cut flower arrangements that will last 10-12 days indoors.
Blanketflower reseeds itself, filling your garden with rich color and interest year after year. Blooming from May through September, Blanketflower prefers a garden location with full sun.
