Sassy it is! Flaunting bright lemon-yellow flowers with deep ruddy red centers, all eyes are drawn to the compact rounded mounds covered in feisty hues. Butterflies and bees are drawn to the colorful blooms and in the fall, songbirds will snack on the dried seed heads.

Coreopsis Sassy Saffron from the Sizzle & Spice™ Series, features bright colors that capture your attention even from a distance. The dainty, finely-cut foliage of Thread-Leaf Tickseed adds texture and an interesting contrast to surrounding perennials. Coreopsis spread slowly but surely and can be used in a naturalized planting on a sunny bank or in the traditional border. Lovely paired with Echinacea or Campanula. Road salt tolerant too!

Coreopsis General Information

Bright and cheery selections will attract butterflies and birds to your garden. Coreopsis are great cut flowers that last up to 2 weeks after being harvested. Superb in the border-reliable. Just give them some sun and enjoy the show. Coreopsis naturalize with ease. Cold hardy, floriferous and easy to grow. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Coreopsis Plant Care

Of the easiest care, likes a hot dry spot. Deadheading (removing spent blossoms) extends blooming, so pick a few for cut flowers while you are in the garden. Leave new fall growth at the base for overwintering. Benefits from division every 2-3 years in spring.
