General Description

This hybrid tickseed, the Corey Yellow™ (‘Core Yel’), is an herbaceous perennial with bright yellow and deep red daisy blossoms fit for cutting. Bloom starts in early summer and continues until frost in autumn. The bright yellow petals turn deep red at their bases where they surround a golden yellow central disc. By late spring or early summer, the plant is an upright mass of stems with flowers reaching above the plant. Butterflies and bees frequent them every chance possible. Deadhead the plant (trim away spent flowers) to keep it blooming well into autumn.

Like most tickseeds, Corey Yellow™ excels in full to part sun and well drained, moist soil that is not highly acidic. This butterfly magnet looks tremendous when massed with other tall sun-loving perennials or ornamental grasses, and is always lovely in meadows. The sturdy flower stems makes them a nice, short term addition to flower bouquets.
