Magenta-red silky petals magically frost with white during the hottest part of season then return to velvety red when weather cools. The bright yellow center really pops against the deep-colored petals. Daisy-like blossoms will open a little earlier than the Big Bang™ varieties and at ½ the height.

From the Li’l Bang Series, the naturally compact habit of Coreopsis Red Elf is disease resistant and long blooming. From master hybridizer, Darrell Probst.

Coreopsis General Information

Coreopsis verticillata are great cut flowers with its unusual narrow tapered foliage. Free flowering-continuously in bloom from early summer into fall. Spreads readily and can be used on a sunny bank, in a naturalized planting, or in a traditional border. Long blooming and easy to grow, they come in various heights and many shades of yellow, reds, pink, and white.

Coreopsis Plant Care

Prefers a nice sunny well drained spot. Very easy to grow. Remove top one-third of plant with hedge shears after flowering to freshen foliage, if needed. Spreads reliably, so division every 2-3 years may be needed to restrain girth, but only if desired.
