Here in South Central Oklahoma, Gaillardia, our state flower is a hands-down winner. Tough, drought tolerant (it has to be to survive here), performs well even our clay soils, beautiful daisy-like blooms of red/orange/yellow all summer long, and they readily reseed themselves so there are plenty to share with friends and neighbors!
