I live at an altitude of 7500' in South Central Colorado where we have little moisture. The dirt Is hard with a lot of clay, sand and an amazing number of rocks. Digging in the ground is difficult and planting is difficult. In spite of this, these drawbacks, I planted the Galliardias which are thriving and spreadIng making a beautiful corner display of color. I have not provided any supplemental watering after their first full year. These are definitely easy to grow and I have 't had any deer or rabbits bother with the.

Beautiful plant ... doesn't over winter well
This plant is beautiful in the summer and doesn't need a lot of water, but it didn't last through the winter and was dead come spring.

A bright and cheerful addition to my garden!
from Vail Valley
I have ordered more than a dozen of these plants. They thrive in my high-altitude garden, are ignored by the deer and rabbits, are loved by the bees and seem to enjoy the lack of water and the abundant sun! Each plant produces dozens of blooms and requires little attention (although the neighbors are constantly admiring them!).

About Me Getting Started
Bloomed continuously from late March until Christmas in Georgia along the 7a/7b line. These were beautiful and almost every plant was hardy and well developed.

A truly incredible plant! They were planted early March and have been bloominng like crazy for 7 months now, as of Oct. 26th. Height is 15 to 18 inches and they are thriving! They made it through a fairly dry summer and early fall here so far with no issues, bees and butterflies like them, and neighbors complement them. Would recommend to anyone, anywhere.

Raring to bloom
By Carola Dune
from La Veta, CO
Only needed a little extra care when first transplanted last fall. One of the plants even put out a small flower bud. The plants are already up and growing this spring.
Not doing well
Never seems to grow. Just stays the same with a few blossoms. Everything around it grows fine.
Not a did in the bunch
By prairie restorer
from Woodstock Illinois
Every plant I've received has been great. Because I live in Illinois with alkaline soil I appreciate the variety of plants suitable for my conditions. I have been doing prairie restoration for a number of years and many of the plants fit right in, with the occasional more exotic beauty added for oomph.
from Rio Rancho, NM
My gallardia moved right in and made itself at home, blooming the entire summer and early fall!

MY Favorite Flowers!
from Oakland, CA
These are great quality plants. They started as small 5 inch plants last year, and now they are 15 to 18 inches high and spread about 18 inches.Beautiful flowers!
from Parker, CO
I planted two of these last fall. They both bloomed last year, and made it through a rough winter. This spring, they are starting out great. They all have blooms on them already.

Blooms constantly from spring until first frost as long as you agressively deadhead...
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
