Arizona Sun


This stunning variety has sunny lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers with an orange ring and golden center; prefers moist, rich sites but will adapt to dry sites; deadhead to promote re-blooming; good for naturalizing. Arizona Apricot Blanket Flower has masses of beautiful lemon yellow daisy flowers with gold eyes and a orange ring at the ends of the stems from early summer to mid fall, which are most effective when planted in groupings. The flowers are excellent for cutting. Its tomentose narrow leaves remain green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
