If there is a perennial heaven, there must be plenty of blanket flowers. This is such a beautiful flowering plant that should not be missing in any bed where bright colours and summer flowering are key features. GALLO™ is another series of blanket flowers, this time very compact ones. They were bred by a dutch breeder Carla Moonen between 2003 and 2004. GALLO™ DARK BICOLOR was patented as PP 20718 in 2010.

GALLO™ DARK BICOLOR is an exceptionally compact and low blanket flower with large flowers. They are daisy-like, bright golden yellow at petal tips, and rich red towards the burgundy red centre. The leaves are narrow, pale green, pubescent. Blanket flowers are a great food for bees and bumble bees, and butterflies can also dine some of its nectar for a long time.

Blanket flower blooms from June until early autumn. Place in full sun and make sure the soil is free draining – in boggy soil it will most certainly die over winter. Fertilizing is usually not needed, while regular deadheading can significantly enhance flowering. Hardy to about -29°C (USDA zone 5).
