I'm looking for a mail order source (not wholesale) for 2 new Gaillardias-G. 'Frenzy' and G. 'Tizzy'. They have the same fluted flowers as 'Fanfare' but one is more burgandy and the other is a coppery orange. So far all I've found are wholesalers. Thanks for any help you can give.

My one and only experience is with Bluestone Perennials.

bluestoneperennials.com (this is not a site link)

I order plants from time to time to grow in my apartment (too impatient to wait for seeds to grow!) and am amazed at the wonderful conditiona of the plants, and I don't find the prices that unreasonable.

In my lastest catalogue (which you can 'click' to receive, also)there are many
Gaillardias listed, including the Fanfare, but not the two you mentioned. BUT you can ask them!! They only seem to show and mention the most popular I think.
At any rate I think you would enjoy their catalogue!

I've ordered from them several times before actually and I agree, the plants are in good shape, but small (that's usually to be expected, though.) I did find out that the 2 I want are in limited supply to only Novalis growers, one of which a local nursery buys from, and she said she would check to see if they would be available to her. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
