Gaillardia aristata ‘Lucky Wheeler’

(Blanket Flower) Similar to ‘Fancy Wheeler’, Gaillardia aristata ‘Lucky Wheeler’ PPAF produces 2″ wide red and yellow blooms but has fluted flower petals. With a compact petite habit, ‘Lucky Wheeler’ PPAF blooms prolifically from early summer to early fall. Heat tolerant Gaillardia are well adapted to poor soil and receive their name from the manner in which they used to “blanket” the prairies of North America.

Lupinus ‘Popcicle Pink’

(Lupine) A sweet and refreshing treat, Lupinus ‘Popcicle Pink’ is a compact selection. ‘Popcicle Pink’ is about one foot shorter than ‘Russell Hybrids’ but produces the same size large flowers in late spring to early summer. Beautiful when planted en masse, ‘Popcicle Pink’ grows best in well-drained, organic soil and will attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.

I love my Lupine and the fact that they are great seeders if you want them to be.
