Does anyone have this new gaillardia? Gaillardias are one of my favorite perennials....last year I got several 'Fanfare' that did really well. I ordered the 'Amber Wheels' from High Country Gardens for next spring. I hope it does as well as the others.

I planted several of the yellow G. puchella last year. They have reseeded and the mother plants are still alive, too...probably because our winter has been warm so far. They tend to be annual in colder climates. I recently found seeds of the one called 'Sundance' which is bicolored. They are supposed to be easy to start from seed. I also have 2 of the burgandy ones, and they have also reseeded. I thought some of my 'Fanfare' gaillardias were dead because they were nothing but sticks, but I recently noticed some new leaves growing at the base of all but one.
