Description

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 deep burgundy red that is frosted with a touch of white during the hottest part of the growing season.

 Coming it at about a foot wide and tall, 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 ‘Lil Bang’ series introduced by master hybridizer Darrell Probst, this little coreopsis really is one-of-a-kind.

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.
