G

GAILLARDIA A fine Native American plant Gaillardia is native from western Canada south to New Mexico. There are actually 20 or so species but the garden forms are all hybrids or selections of G. aristata. It will bloom for months and months producing a seemingly endless supply of large brightly colored daisies. It is best on dry sandy soils and will recover from damage if even a scrap of root is still alive propagating readily from root cuttings if you wish clonal material or easily from seed if you want some variation. We are pleased to offer the following forms.

Gaillardia aristata 'Amber Wheels'

Gaillardia aristata 'Amber Wheels'

Understated flowers for a gaillardia, large amber yellow ray petals, and a warm orangey center. The species is native to a wide swath of the Western half of the US and most of Canada, and copes well with harsh conditions and climates. This is pure G. aristata, and so is much longer lived than most of the common varieties which are hybrids between G. aristata (a perennial) and the annual species G. pulchella. Zone 4

Gaillardia mix

Gaillardia mix

Gaillardia Michung/mix Nice mix of red to yellow fuzzy daisies, with lots of brilliant bicolors. Like most Gaillardia, tends to be short lived, but makes up for it by flowering pretty much constantly. Zone 5.

Galax aphylla

Galax aphylla

Creamy white flowers on slender racemes and shiny heart shaped leaves that are often used in Christmas decorations. The leathery leaves sit on long petioles and make a wonderful groundcover for under Rhododendrons; this can form large colonies rather quickly under the right conditions, but needs a shady acid site, foliage is much like Shortia, its much easier to please but not as elegant.

Galtonia candicans

Galtonia candicans

Pretty late summer flowering bulb, a bit on the tender side here, with large spikes of fragrant creamy white bell-shaped flowers reaching 2-4 feet. Sometimes called summer hyacinth, the form of the plant reminds me more of supersized spanish bluebells.

Reminiscent of calycosa, from dry gravely meadows (actually there is plenty of moisture through early summer) 4-6" stems are topped with a small cluster of good blue flowers.

Gentiana dahurica

Gentiana dahurica

A big (well, compared to G. acaulis and friends. Only 10 inches or so high) robust, easy gentiana. Long, glossy dark green leaves form the absolute picture of health, and in late summer produces large numbers of smallish flowers that shade of intense blue only gentiana can pull off. If you've failed with gentians before, or are intimidated by their reputation for being fussy, this is the one to start with. Zone 4

Gentiana gracilipes

Gentiana gracilipes

One of the medium sized gentianas, to a little less than a foot, with masses of small, true-blue flowers in the late summer into fall. The taller gentianas get overshadowed by comparison to the tiny, elite, difficult acaulis types, but I think the comparison is unfair. You wouldn't put this in a trough, but in a perennial boarder it is spectacular, the color of the flowers is hard to beat, is provides a wonderful lift to the late summer garden when things can be getting a bit dull, and unlike G. acaulis, it doesn't up and die for no reason, which is always a plus.
