Plant the Red Blanket Flower 'Burgunder' in the ground immediately after receiving it. Plant in loose well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in some sharp sand. Plant the Red Blanket Flower 'Burgunder' 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.
Red Blanket Flower 'Burgunder' makes an excellent combination plant
The large red daisy-like flowers are sometimes tipped with yellow, very decorative! This colourful plant blends well with other yellow, orange and red flowers and can be successfully combined with Kniphofia and the Inca Lily (Alstroemeria) in the border.
This plant grows best in well-drained, relatively dry soil. Wet soil is not tolerated very well, especially in the winter. Be sure to prevent the soil around its roots from drying out. Add plant food along with water regularly during the flowering. Deadheading the faded flowers will prolong the flowering period. It is also a good idea to pick them as a cut flower for a vase as this will encourage further growth. Its flowers will bloom throughout the entire summer.
Blanket Flower needs to be trimmed
Cut all the flower stems and a large part of its leaves in early September. The roots can then produce new, strong leaves for the arrival of winter. Cover the plant with a layer of fallen leaves or conifer branches in the winter. Apply garden manure early in the spring.
The Red Blanket Flower 'Burgunder' makes wonderful cut flowers. The daisy-like flowers will definitely stand out in a flower arrangement. The flowers last a long time in a vase. 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.
