This plant has large, bright and unusual flowers that retain shape and freshness for a long time. A bush of gaylard with a height of up to seventy centimeters. Dense leaves of lanceolate form form a rosette around the stem. Shoots strongly branch. Inflorescences in the form of baskets up to ten centimeters in diameter. The cut gailardia, the care of which will allow it to be kept in a vase for a long time, will decorate the room and create a bright color accent. Mixed flower beds, curbs, rabatki and Alpine hills will look great, if for them to come up with an effective composition. In order not to create unnecessary difficulties with the combination of different plants, you can take two types, one of which will be gaylard.

They occurred from the crossing of lowland species with awned gaylardia. The latter is a bright perennial, blooming from June to September.

How to care for gaylardia

Choose a place for the plant that is well illuminated by the sun, with dry and moderately fertile soil. Additional application of manure and acidification is not required. Gaylardia easily suffers a long break between watering. Reproduce it often vegetatively - by dividing the bush. Hybrid gaylard, seedlings of which are sold in flower markets, will better preserve varietal characteristics if it is propagated by seeds. They are sown in early April on the beds in the greenhouse. In early August, they transplanted - the next year the plant is guaranteed to bloom. Rhizome for vegetative propagation is divided early in the spring - this is facilitated by the fact that gaylardia late blooms. You can also do this in early September, if the autumn in your area is often warm. It is important that the bushes managed to start before the frost. Expanded gailardia needs a garter or supports. Then the bush has a more well-groomed appearance. Summer gaylardiya tolerates, almost without requiring watering, except in the most arid periods. In the period of budding, fertilizing is carried out with mineral fertilizer. To prevent freezing in cold winters, gaylardia should be better covered with peat, humus or spruce needles.
