Spintop Halo Orange

Spintop Halo Orange- Blanket Flowers are valuable in the summer border for their very long season of bloom. Plants form a low mound of light-green leaves, bearing upright stems of large daisy-type flowers. This selection from the Spintop series features flat, dark orange petals with golden tips that form an outer halo. The series are compact, upright growers. Excellent for cutting, with nice long stems. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Plants should be divided every 2 to 3 years, in early spring. Not the best choice for heavy clay soil that will stay wet through the winter. Removing faded flowers will encourage constant blooming.
