Gaillardia aristata 'Kobold'
Purple bellflowers
A border full of radiant colours! The blanketflower 'Kobold' (Gaillardia) is a beautiful, long-flowering plant that produces summery flowers. This blanketflower grows to approx. 60 cm and is very hardy. The flowers attract bees and butterflies and are also very suitable as cut flowers. and its blooming period is from June to September. The plant then produces so many flowers that it can become exhausted. It’s best to use it as a regular source for cut flowers. This ensures that the plant has enough energy left over.
The blanketflower flourishes in a sunny border or in a pot on your patio or balcony. Give it extra water during dry periods.
That makes everyone happy, doesn't it?

Planting+

Plant Gaillardia aristata 'Kobold' in light, well-drained soil in a sunny position, although they will grow well in most soils and partial shade. The soil must have a good drainage as badly drained soil will cause the plant to die in winter. Prepare a suitable hole, improve heavy garden soil with some sharp sand before planting the blanket flower at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. 

Blanket flower is great for the border

The large, red and yellow flowers of the blanket flower will definitely stand out in the border. Combine them in beds and borders with red hot poker plants (Kniphofia) and Inca lilies (Alstroemeria). They are also very beautiful when planted in large groups within a border.

Care+

The blanket flower ‘Kobold’ grows best in well-drained, relatively dry soil. It is not happy in soil that is too wet, especially in winter. However, do not let the soil around the roots dry out completely. During the flowering period regularly add plant food when watering. Also cut the wilted flower stems to stimulate new flowering. If you keep on cutting them for the home, it promotes the growth of the plant and you will continue to enjoy the flowering throughout the summer.

Blanket flower needs to be cut back

Early in September, cut back all the flower stems and a large part of the foliage. The roots can then produce new growth for the arrival of winter. Cover the plant with a layer of fallen leaves or conifer branches in the winter. Apply garden fertiliser early in the spring.

Extra+

The large-flowered blanket flower 'Kobold' makes an excellent cut flower for an arrangement and also lasts a long time in a vase. So do not miss out, plant plenty in your border. Pick the flowers preferably early in the morning. Remove the bottom leaves and place the stems directly into a vase full of lukewarm water with flower food.
