  • Compared with other seed gaillardia, Mesa varieties are more uniform in habit and flowering time, for easier scheduling and shipping.
  • Very drought tolerant once established, with intense, non-fading colour all season.
  • Upright, well-balanced plants perform well in landscapes and mixed containers.
