COREOPSIS 'Limerock Ruby'( LIMEROCK SERIES) PP15455

Plant Common Name

Coreopsis, Hybrid Tickseed, Limerock Ruby Tickseed

General Description

Limerock ruby tickseed is a very showy, short-lived perennial. It produces tidy mounded plants, with deeply divided medium green foliage. In summer, many pretty daisies of ruby red appear. Spent flowers should be removed to encourage continued flowering.

Like most Coreopsis, these do best in sites with full to part sun and well drained, average soil. They make great additions to sunny perennial borders and containers, and their flowers are attractive to butterflies.
