Garden Perspectives - Arizona Blanket Flower

"Arizona Blanket Flower"

Another one of my favorite flowers that I will plant in my garden every year and photograph one hundred times over.

Though it's labeled as a perennial, I haven't had much success in the flower returning every year, maybe because I use it in a container, but the color and beauty gets my attention.  Each year, I seek it out at a local garden center and plant a few.  Sometimes, it's different varieties- just depends on what I find.  

The "Bumble Bees" tend to love this flower too.
