Gaillardia prefers well-drained soil with a near neutral pH and is tolerant of average or poor nutrient soils. Choose a site with full sun.
Direct sow seed outdoors after last frost date or start seed indoors 4-6 weeks earlier. Sow seeds 1/8" deep and 4-6" apart. Seeds will sprout in 14-42 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 12-18" apart.
Keep adequately moist for first year until plants become well established. Drought tolerant once established.
Perennial Gaillardia seed matures throughout summer until fall. Seed is ready to harvest when dry and fluffy. Store seeds in a cool, dry place. Seeds are viable for 2-3 years.
