Do I need to deadhead my gaillardia fanfare to keep these blossoming until frost and have them come back next year, or just leave them go to seeds? Please answer if you can, thanks!!

Welcome to The Garden Helper's Forum, Luv2garden!
Glad you found us!!!

I have grown just the common Gaillardia
and that's what I do to keep them coming,
is dead head...Then towards the end, when you can
tell the plant has had enough of blooming,
and it wants to stop, I let the rest of the flowers go to seed...
That way you get a the best of both worlds..
flowers and seeds!!!!

P.S. Just so you know, I'm going to move your post down into the plants AND flowers SECTION,
and see if you get some more responses to your question about that specific plant....
