Gaillardia pulchella Annual, a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family.  Antique, extra showy variety named after M. Gaillard de Charentonneau, an 18th-century French magistrate who was a patron of botany.  Dating back to at least 1886.  This cultivar of a native North-American wildflower has been around more than a century under different names, but it's a new discovery for us.  The 2-3” quilled florets bloom in an array of red and golden hues on a 1x1’ mounded plant, 12-18" tall.  Quite the showstopper, Lorenziana got top ratings for its masses of blooms over a long period of time in Florida trials.  In central Maine trials, too.  The genus is salt tolerant, heat tolerant, drought tolerant, deer-proof, and—in the words of a Florida theme park director—"butt hardy," meaning it can bounce back after people sit on it.  Besides people, it also attracts bees, butterflies, and birds. Exemplary cut flower.  Start 6-8 weeks early or direct seed.  Blooms all summer if deadheaded.  Full sun.
