Plant Description

Arizona Apricot, a new color selection in blanket flowers, has soft yellow-edged petals that deepen to a rich apricot-orange at their bases surrounding a cone of gold, orange, and green. It was awarded an All American Selections Winner in 2011. Arizona Apricot makes tidy 10” clumps that are irresistible to butterflies and quite drought tolerant. Deadheading periodically prolongs flowering. It’s great in borders or containers for continuous summer blooming in full sun and dry, very well drained soils. Enjoy.  New this year!
