Gaillardia 'Yellow Shield' is a bright addition to the garden, with glowing yellow semi double flowers with contrasting red centres, and they will bloom for most of the year in warm areas. The plant is biennial, meaning it lasts for two years. Great for containers as they are neat mound shaped plants, and will brighten courtyards and patios with their sunny faces, and also good for garden plantings. Give them a handful of slow release fertiliser to feed the continual flowering. Love a sunny space in well drained soils. Blooms are great for cut flower use. Good waterwise plants once established.
