I am glad the NGB picked Gaillardia. It is a much better choice than the Perennial Plant Association's pick of Geranium 'Biokovo', which is a real dog in southern heat and humidity.

So Gaillardia is tolerant of high humidity? Good to know!
I love G. biokovo, it does well here and I spec it in my designs quite often. Sorry to hear that you can't enjoy it in your climate.
