Deep burgundy blooms are 3" across with a button-like center which emerges bright yellow and then slowly changes to velvety red. Flowers bloom coming continuously from early summer into the fall, gracing gardens and containers alike with fresh vibrant blanket flowers. Once established Burgundy is very easy, proving its heat tolerance and best garden performance when grown in poorer soils. The blanket flower can still be found in fields and along roadsides in the prairie region and into the Rockies.
Plants should be divided every 2 to 3 years, in early spring. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil that will stay wet through the winter.
Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming.
