12" x 12" wide. A new color companion to the fabulous 'Arizona Sun' Gaillardia, 'Arizona Red Shades' brings gardeners a dwarf, well branched variety that thrives in dry heat. The gorgeous flowers with brick red petals and a darker burgundy cone keep coming all summer.

Once established, the plants perform best with only occasional deep watering. We recommend this variety as an outstanding, easy-to-grow choice for your hottest, sunniest garden spots.
