COREOPSIS 'Limerock Dream'( LIMEROCK SERIES) PP16923

Plant Common Name

Coreopsis, Hybrid Tickseed

General Description

Like other coreopsis in the Limerock series, ‘Limerock Dream’ is a showy, free-flowering, short-lived perennial. The plant is a tidy mound of deeply divided medium green leaves on upright and spreading stems. Branching flower stems rise above the leaves in summer, bearing a profusion of daisy-like flowers with petals that shade from purplish-red at their tips to yellow-orange at their bases.

Like most Coreopsis, it does best in full to part sun and well drained, average soil. Use it in a sunny mixed border or bed as an accent plant or a companion to small ornamental grasses for the contrast in texture. Deadhead (remove spent flowers) regularly to prolong bloom from spring to fall. It makes good cut flowers.
