Bred in England by Rosemary Hardy, ‘Oranges and Lemons’ arose in the summer of 2002 at the inventor's nursery in Hampshire, England as a single chance seedling (Plant Haven Nursery web site).
Gaillardia was studied by Auguste Denis Fourgeroux (1732-1782) and he named it after Gaillard de Charentoneau.
I garden in zone #5 where Gaillardia are short lived. The best Gaillardia plantings I have seen are where the plants have reseeded. Most of the Gaillardias are cultivars and don't come true from seed, the seedlings revert back to some other form but usually still OK as volunteer plants.
