Mounds of yellow feathery foliage topped with rich red flowers makes Cherry Lemonade tickseed a sight to behold! An herbaceous perennial selected by Terra Nova Nurseries of Canby, Oregon, 'Cherry Lemonade' is a dwarf cultivar with limited winter cold tolerance. Early to bloom and continuously flowering, the red to deep crimson petals surround a dark orange-red disk, attracting butterflies and bees. Promptly trimming off spent flowers ensures a constant flush of new flowers.
Plant 'Cherry Lemonade' in a well-draining moist to slightly dry soil that is fertile and not highly alkaline in pH. Capable of enduring light drought, water it if both heat and dry soil occur in unison to prevent browning. This sun-loving perennial is well-suited to the front of perennial borders or as an edging. Its intolerance of prolonged subfreezing winter temperatures finds it best as a vivid seasonal container plant or bedding annual outside its hardiness range. It does, however, need a winter dormancy to return, even in frost-free gardens.
