COREOPSIS 'Pineapple Pie' PPAF
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Pineapple Pie tickseed's flowers perhaps match up well in color to ripe pineapple and cinnamon. An herbaceous perennial selected by Terra Nova Nurseries of Canby, Oregon, 'Pineapple Pie' is a low, sprawling to mounding cultivar with limited winter cold tolerance. Continuously flowering from summer to fall, the golden yellow petals surround a dark rusty disk, attracting butterflies and bees. The base of the yellow petals turn rusty orange-red immediately around the disk. Promptly trimming off spent flowers ensures a constant flush of new flowers.
Plant 'Pineapple Pie' 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 a groundcover in a rockery or foundation bed. 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.
