Cultivation Advice 

  • Plant Gaillardia aristata ‘Bicolor Goblin’ in the spring after the last frost date or in early autumn. Choose a location with well-draining soil and full sun exposure.
  • Ensure the soil is well-draining. Incorporate organic matter like compost to improve soil fertility and structure, providing a good growing environment.
  • Gaillardia aristata ‘Bicolor Goblin’ thrives in full sun. Aim for at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and prolific blooming.
  • Water newly planted Gaillardia regularly to establish a robust root system. Once established, they are quite drought-tolerant but benefit from occasional watering during dry spells.
  • Apply a balanced fertilizer at planting time and again during the growing season to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering.
  • Space Gaillardia plants about 12 to 18 inches apart. Plant them at the same depth as they were in their nursery containers.
  • Apply a layer of mulch around the plants to retain soil moisture and suppress weed growth. Keep the area around the base of the plant weed-free.
  • Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming. Prune back the entire plant lightly after the first flush of flowers to encourage reblooming.
  • Gaillardia ‘Bicolor Goblin’ is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, monitor for aphids or powdery mildew and treat accordingly if detected.
  • Gaillardia is usually hardy, but in harsh winter climates, a layer of mulch can help protect the plant’s roots from freezing temperatures.
  • Suitable for borders, containers, or mixed perennial beds. Regular maintenance, including deadheading, maintains plant vigor and promotes more blooms.
  • Pair with other sun-loving perennials or use as an accent plant. Combine with plants that complement its colors for an attractive garden display.
  • Division every few years helps rejuvenate the plant and prevents overcrowding, promoting healthier growth and prolonged blooming.
  • Gaillardia ‘Bicolor Goblin’ adds vibrant colors to garden beds and attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, contributing to garden biodiversity.
  • The colorful blooms of Gaillardia attract various pollinators, making it a valuable addition to pollinator-friendly gardens.
  • Gaillardia prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.0. Amending the soil with well-decomposed organic matter also aids in moisture retention.
  • While Gaillardia can tolerate heat well, it thrives in moderate temperatures. Adequate airflow prevents fungal diseases in humid climates.
  • Once established, Gaillardia is drought-tolerant. Water deeply but infrequently to encourage deep root growth. Overwatering can lead to root rot.
  • A light application of balanced fertilizer in early spring can support healthy growth. However, excessive fertilization can lead to leggy growth and fewer flowers.
  • Consistent deadheading promotes continuous blooming. Trim back spent flowers to encourage new growth and prolong flowering.
  • Mulching around the base of the plant helps insulate roots during winter. In colder regions, consider protecting them with a frost blanket.
  • Gaillardia can thrive in containers. Ensure the pots have adequate drainage and use a well-draining potting mix to prevent waterlogging.
  • Good air circulation helps prevent fungal diseases. Adequate spacing between plants and proper site selection are essential preventive measures.
  • Pair Gaillardia with drought-tolerant plants for a low-maintenance garden. Plants like lavender, Russian sage, or ornamental grasses complement its colors and growth habits.
  • Dividing clumps every few years helps rejuvenate the plant and prevents overcrowding. This process also provides an opportunity to propagate new plants.
  • Gaillardia flowers attract pollinators like bees and butterflies. Incorporating them into your garden can support local pollinator populations.
  • Regular pruning, especially after the initial bloom, encourages bushier growth and stimulates additional flower production.
  • Allow seed heads to dry on the plant before collecting seeds for propagation. Store them in a cool, dry place until ready for sowing.
