Grower Information:

A First-Year-Flowering Perennial. Supplied as clean seed.
The first F1 gaillardia from seed puts out lots of fast colour on “no-flop” plants. Strong, early-flowering, well-branched plants fill gallon containers quickly and maintain a controlled height without “flopping” over. Uniform habit and flowering time make Mesa easy to schedule and ship. Very drought tolerant once established, with intense, nonfading colour all season. Upright, well-branched plants perform well in landscapes and mixed containers.

Bright red flowers with bright yellow band; the width of the band varies depending on environmental conditions, but flowers always have more yellow than competing varieties.
