A Color Breakthrough in Coreopsis
Deep ruby red velvety flowers are fringed with icy white. Extremely long-blooming, this gem from the Hardy Jewel™ Series is attracting lots of attention! The dainty, finely-cut foliage of Coreopsis adds texture and interesting contrast to surrounding perennials. They can be used in a naturalized planting on a sunny bank or in the traditional border. Coreopsis is lovely paired with Echinacea or Campanula. Road salt tolerant.

Coreopsis General Information

Coreopsis are superb in the border. Reliable, long blooming daisy-like flowers are produced from early summer into fall. Just give them some sun and enjoy the show. Coreopsis naturalize with ease and will attract lots of butterflies and birds to your garden. Bright and cheery, they make great cut flowers. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Coreopsis Plant Care

Needs a nice sunny well drained spot. Very easy to grow. Remove top one third of plant with hedge shears after flowering to freshen foliage. Spreads underground, so division every 2-3 years may be necessary to contain girth.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
