We always come back to blanket flower (Gaillardia x grandiflora) for its cheerful, pompom-daisylike blooms. Many varieties are available with floofy, single or double flowers in various warm shades of yellow, bronze, and red. We love the completely ridiculous 'Fanfare Blaze,' with its dark coral-red trumpetlike ray flowers and compact (12-16" tall) form peachy-orange 'Arizona Apricot' (pictured), which grows to a foot or two in height and 1-2 feet tall ‘Sunset Popsy’ with deep red flowers bordered in a rim of yellow.
Black-eyed Susan is a tried-and-true favorite of the perennial garden, well-loved for its deep, butterscotch-yellow ray flowers radiating from dark chocolate centers. Grown in full sun, plants reach 3 to 4 feet tall and 1 ½ feet wide. Though the yellow and black flower form (pictured) is a classic, we love these newer varieties: 'Cherokee Sunset' for its amber-brown blooms and fuzzy button-nosed centers 'Caramel Mixed' for its softer autumn colors and rounded form and 'Cherry Brandy' for its dark red rays and black centers. Rudbeckias can be found at pretty much any nursery or garden center, or can be grown from seed with ease.
