Coreopsis verticillata 'Red Hot Vanilla' PPAF

SIZZLE & SPICE® Series

Common Name: Threadleaf Coreopsis

Heat up your summer garden with SIZZLE & SPICE® Coreopsis, a new line of Threadleaf Coreopsis from Walters Gardens, Inc. hybridizing. Members of this collection have compact, rounded habits that are covered with flowers from early to late summer. With bright colors like red, orange, yellow and dark magenta, these varieties will capture your attention in the garden and on your retail shelves alike.

The habit and performance of this red and white Tickseed are almost too hot to handle! 1-1½" wide, cream flowers have a dark red central eye and form a domed, rounded habit. As the flower ages, the eye gets bigger until it comprises most of the flower. The flowers will cover the gray-green, threadleaf foliage for a showy midsummer display.

Coreopsis is easy to grow, making it a good choice for beginners. One plant will provide you with long-lasting cut flower bouquets all summer long.
