Also known as Prairie Gaillardia.

Lanceleaf Blanketflower is a showy, prolific bloomer. The flowers are distinctive because they often have only partial rays or in some cases are virtually rayless. When the rays drop, the globular cones remain attractive. Deadheading spent flowers is not necessary, but will tidy the planting and may encourage additional bloom. Because individual plants tend to be tall and slender, they are best used in mass planting.

Lanceleaf Blanketflower  is easily grown in light, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers soils that receive regular moisture, but soils must drain well. It adapts to amended clay-loam, but performs poorly in unamended, heavy clay soils. 

Lanceleaf Blanketflower is susceptible to powdery mildew, aster yellows and fungal leaf spot diseases.
