Arizona Sun' Blanket Flower

The blanket flower regularly appears on lists of heat-tolerant plants; there are several great cultivars so you have only to choose your color. A 2005 All-America Selections winner, Galliardia 'Arizona Sun' forms a foot-tall mound topped with brightly hued, large flowers, a showier plant than 'Sundance Bicolor', a 2003 winner. It thrives in full, hot sun in USDA Zones 3 to 8. Blanket flower grows easily from seed.
