This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
You may first think you're looking at a cosmos as Ruby Frost tickseed's flowers jet out at curious, jagged angles above the foliage. An herbaceous perennial selected by Terra Nova Nurseries of Canby, Oregon, 'Ruby Frost' is a large rounded cultivar. Its deep red petals are edged in white around a gold-tipped dark red disk, attracting butterflies and bees. Promptly trimming away old flowers encourages repeated flowering across summer.
Plant 'Ruby Frost' in a well-draining moist to slightly dry soil that is fertile and not highly alkaline in pH. Capable of enduring drought, water it if both heat and dry soil occur in unison to prevent leaf browning and diminished flowering. This sun-loving perennial is well-suited to perennial borders and large containers. It's best as a seasonal container plant or bedding annual in very cold winter regions.
