Judges noted the distinctive apricot flower color of the 3 to 3 1/2 in. (7-8 cm) daisy-like flower, and described it as exceptionally lovely and lighter in color than traditional gaillardia. Blooms have yellow edges that darken to a rich apricot in the center. The compact 12 in. (30 cm) tall plants offer bright green foliage and a tidy uniform habit. The flowers bloom from the beginning from summer into autumn. Arizona Apricot is free-flowering, blooming heavily without vernalization, covering the plant with bright blooms that look great in mass. Hardy in USDA Zones 2-10, Arizona Apricot is relatively maintenance free and drought-tolerant.
