General Description

Pink Lemonade tickseed's rounded mounds of feathery foliage topped with rich coral-pink flowers may very well cause you to crave a refreshing glass of lemonade! An easy-to-grow herbaceous perennial selected by Terra Nova Nurseries of Canby, Oregon, 'Pink Lemonade' is a compact cultivar with limited winter cold tolerance. Primarily blooming in summer, the coral-pink petals surround a rusty orange disk, attracting butterflies and bees. Promptly trimming off spent flowers encourages repeat flushes of new flowers until autumn.

Plant 'Pink Lemonade' 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 mixed borders, in rockeries, or as an edging. 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.
