“I'll never forget the day or excitement when my friend, John Walters of Walters Gardens, invited me to see this red-flowered Coreopsis in his fields.
They had several hundred plants they were trialing in their field and it was a sight to behold! Each compact mound of apple-green foliage was topped with dozens of velvety-red flowers that did NOT change to yellow in summer's heat!
At that time this new seedling didn't even have a name, but everyone who saw it knew it was a winner!”

FINALLY it has arrived! The velvety-red flowered HARDY Coreopsis we've all been waiting for!
GIANT 1.5 to 2" velvet-red flowers adorn this compact, mound-shaped Coreopsis for over 5+ months!
As we write this, it is still in full bloom on Halloween...October 31st!
Foliage is a bright, healthy green all season and shows NO hint of the dreaded mildew disease that often affects other Coreopsis.
This breakthrough new hybrid is the result of many years of hand-crossing by famed-hybridizer Darrell Probst.
Darrell has spent the past ten years striving for a Zone 5 (possibly Zone 4) ultra-hardy bright red-flowered Coreopsis to add to his much-acclaimed Big Bang Coreopsis series. He has hit it out of the park with his new velvety-red Mercury Rising Coreopsis!
Mercury Rising Coreopsis forms an attractive 18" tall and 24" wide mound of bright, colorful flowers atop disease-free foliage. Combines perfectly with flowering Sedums, Ornamental Grasses, & long-blooming KnockOut Roses!
Thrives in full sun and well-drained soil.
