Sabal etonia and Gaillardia pulchella

Sabal etonia and Gaillardia pulchella, or "scrub palmetto" and "blanket flower" respectively, are two Florida natives that make a lovely and tough combination. Consider these easy-care plants if you’ve got dry, sandy, full-sun conditions with which to contend. Scrub palmetto has a leaf similar in shape to saw palmetto, however it has no spines on the stem to poke you. It may eventually grow to 6 feet, but is very slow growing and 4 feet tall by 4-6 feet wide is more the norm. All leaves originate from a central growing point, and add an exciting course texture to the garden. "Blanket flower" usually acts as an annual that reliably self-seeds. Its cheery burgundy and yellow daisy-like flowers are prolifically produced almost year-round. Cut off spent flowers if you wish, or just let nature take over, and only cut dead plants to the ground. Blanket flower grows to about 2 feet tall, but flops over and spreads out, cozying up amongst the spiky stems of the scrub palmetto. Pair these two with a third native plant of your choice for an interesting and colorful landscape grouping.
