COREOPSIS 'Cranberry Ice' PP19470
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Large blossoms that rival those of cosmos, Cranberry Ice tickseed's blooms are a deep cranberry red with petal edges and tips dappled in white. An herbaceous perennial selected by Terra Nova Nurseries of Canby, Oregon, 'Cranberry Ice' is a low mounding cultivar with bright "flower power". Its deep coral-red petals are tipped in white speckles and surround a dark red disk with golden anthers, attracting butterflies and bees. The flowers continue if spent blossoms are promptly trimmed off.
Plant 'Cranberry Ice' in a well-draining moist to slightly dry soil that is fertile and not highly alkaline in pH. Capable of enduring drought, water it if both heat and dry soil occur in unison to prevent leaf browning and diminished flowering. This sun-loving perennial is well-suited to the front of perennial borders, in containers, or as a massed groundcover in a rockery or foundation bed. It's best as a vivid seasonal container plant or bedding annual in very cold winter regions.
