This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The warm colored blossoms of Pumpkin Pie tickseed challenges the sun for attention in the summer landscape. An herbaceous perennial selected by Terra Nova Nurseries of Canby, Oregon, 'Pumpkin Pie' is a compact mounding cultivar with limited winter cold tolerance. The spicy golden orange petals heighten to orange-red at their bases, attracting butterflies and bees. The central disk is deep reddish brown. Promptly trimming off spent flowers ensures a constant flush of new flowers in summer, even into early autumn.
Plant 'Pumpkin 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, containers 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.
