My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant from Laymans in September 2010 and planted it in the Berm On the Border. It has been by far the most floriferous of my Gaillardias. It bloomed until frost and was in full bloom and twice as large by the end of April 2011. Did well for several years but gone by 2014.
