(Coreopsis tinctoria) A newer discovery for us, this carefree, dazzling plant lends itself to natural wildflower gardenscapes and mass plantings. 3’ tall open plants with sprays of mahogany red semi-doubled blooms, partly rolled petals and contrasting yellow color. This 2009 Fleuroselect Gold medal winner is beautiful as an airy cut flower filler in bouquets. Drought and cold tolerant, unattractive to deer, attractive to butterflies, long-blooming from early summer through late fall and freely reseeding. Yes. Yes. Yes. (Not totally stable-throws an occasional yellow flowering plant). Also, why is nobody growing these??! Remember your wish for dependable blooms summer through fall? I'm reminding you.
