Coreopsis or tickseed is an excellent plant for any garden because it is easy to grow and also packs a big punch. This little native is great for those looking to bring more native plants back to the yard, but it is as beautiful as anything else you’ll find. Starting in late spring/early summer the small flowers on Coreopsis start coming and then they keep coming and coming and coming in large flushes until the end of the growing season with no need for deadheading.  This particular variety is very unique in that the flowers are a hot red with inlays of orange during the hottest part of the growing season.

Coming in a little over foot tall and two feet wide, this is a space saving cultivar that is at home in both the front to middle of a garden bed, or in a container - thanks to its ability to tolerate dry hot conditions. They are perfect for anywhere you need extra space like container gardens, window plantings and rock gardens, but bold enough to fit into a larger planting scheme. Part of the SIZZLE & SPICE® series these are great plants for beginners looking to minimize effort and maximize value with prolific blooms.

Tickseed makes a great cut flowers and the long lasting blooms will keep your garden looking great through much of the year. Native to North America, when it comes to disease resistance and ease of care coreopsis is hard to beat. Grow in full sun and soil that drains in the winter months.

Hot Paprika Coreopsis

Received my Hot Paprika, Coreopsis plants and they were a nice size, very well packed, and healthy. Planted them pretty immediately and they are already doing well. Love the color of the blooms! Very happy with this purchase!

Hot Paprika

It has turned into a petite plant with dark red flowers and is very pretty. I have planted it among other yellow and multi-colored coreopsis
