Q.I Don\’t Understand Your Sentence About Blanket Flowers (Gaillardia)

Zone 77354 | drdavis added on May 18, 2020 | Answered

On your page, https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/blanket-flower/growing-blanket-flowers.htm You have this 2-sentence paragraph, Gaillardia aristata is a resilient wildflower, often used in roadside plantings for its ease of naturalizing and care. Cultivars ‘Goblin’, ‘Burgundy Wheels’ and Arizona Sun’ drop seeds for more of the growing blanket flowers and are parented by G. aristata. I don’t understand the 2nd sentence. I hope you will clarify it for me and likely others. I am very interested in the subject, and want to know what you mean.

That is, simply, explaining that those two cultivars share the same lineage, and will be considered in that group. Both have Gaillardia aristata as a parent plant. Meaning one or both of the cultivar's parentage is of this species.
