Striking flowerheads set this perennial apart

The Red Mesa offers profuse, deep crimson flowers that retain their colour throughout the summer months. Its striking flowerheads contain unique, globe-shaped seed heads. This variety produces nectar-rich flowers, shaped like daisies, attracting plenty of pollinators. Gaillardias are uniform, compact plants with a strong, upright growing habit. They are tolerant of harsh conditions like drought, intense heat and strong winds. As such, they require little care and are perfectly suited to owners of any level of experience.

Fresh from the Nursery, our perennials and alpines are despatched directly from expert growers, based within Southern England. There is no sitting around in garden centers or fulfillment centres, so you rest assured that your plant will arrive fresh, healthy and in perfect condition.

How Your Order Will Arrive

About your plant - Our reliable nurseries have a real passion for plants. Their extensive range and reputation are key to the foundations of the business. Our expert nursery has spent decades perfecting the art of watering, feeding, and pruning perennials, and will do so until hours before they are packed.

Packaging- Please note that perennials die back to soil level in winter. If ordered during the colder months they might not experience the best growth. However, provided they are cared for accordingly they will grow back in the spring. Your perennials will be expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box, which will hold it securely in place. Your plant will then be delivered via a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

These hardy perennials are best grown in a sunny setting. Plant them in well-drained, nutrient-poor soil devoid of fertiliser. As they are low-maintenance, these plants require occasional watering. However, deadheading encourages longer-lasting blooms. Gaillardias are generally trouble-free but may collect powdery mildew during summer droughts. Cut off the affected foliage to prevent further spread of the disease.

Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
