Gaillardia Mesa™ Yellow
Gaillardia x grandiflora ‘Mesa Yellow’ is a multifunctional addition to the popular range of first-year flowering perennials and can be used both in the ground and in containers. It tolerates a very wide range of climates, including hot/humid, hot/dry and cool/moist (in well-drained soil).
This variety won a Fleuroselect Gold Medal a couple of years ago. The product was rated highly by the Fleuroselect judges for its all-round performance. Growers appreciate the arrival of this first commercial-quality, yellow Gaillardia from seed. The variety fills a container quickly and fits into the category of first-year flowering perennials requiring no vernalisation. The uniform flowering gives the variety an added advantage. For retailers the value lies in the bright yellow flowers which attract attention to the plant and in the pot it appears compact and well-branched forming an excellent display in the garden centres. Consumers will be delighted that the variety is drought-tolerant after the plant has been established. The long flowering season is a definite plus as are the strong stems that do not tip over in the garden.
