Blanket Flower

Zone Knoxville 37920 | mimms added on April 12, 2018 | Answered

I live in zone 6B-7. When can I expect Blanket Flower to begin showing growth? Planted the red Arizona variety last year and they performed beautifully. Not seeing any sign of growth yet this season (April 12 today) I cut them back in the fall to an inch above ground. Thanks

Blanket flower loves hot weather and is late to emerge. You may go another month before it starts to poke out. It is also known as having a short life, 3 years or so. Letting it go to seed in early fall ensures survival.
