  • Mary Pitner:

    These are listed as annuals; however, feature listed above says, “…remove old blooms if you don’t want them to reseed.” I have a large vacant lot in full sun, and I would love to plant these. Do I understand correctly that the plants will reseed and come back the next year to bloom?

    Thanks!

  • Jason:

    Thanks for visiting our website. Gaillardias are perennials, and the Torch varieties should survive the winter. The difference with the Torch Gaillardia is that they are grown from cuttings instead of seeds like most of the standard gaillardias like ‘Goblin’. It is the standard seed varieties that may reseed. I do not think that the Torch varieties will reseed, but I am also not 100% certain they won’t. If they were to reseed they will probably revert to the parent plant and not look the same.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. I will pass this along to some others who may be able to better answer your question.

  • Hi, I agree with Jason that if they do reseed(and it’s likely you’ll get a few) they won’t be exactly the same plant. We do not consider this variety to be a true perennial. I’m not sure where you are located, but the faurther south you are the better chance you will have of it coming back. We call these type of plants “tender” perennials for that reason. The best thing about this gaillardia is it’s heat and drought tolerance. I hope this helps. Thanks.
