Coreopsis Uptick™ Gold & Bronze Description
New! There's so much we love about this neat new coreopsis - longer blooming, larger flowers, and the bright yellow blooms blessed with a red eye that make an absolutely stunning display in the garden. Oh - and it's mildew resistant! Coreopsis is also called tickseed, but don't panic: that's just because its tiny seeds are shiny and black. This native flowering perennial is super low maintenance, and makes a great choice for beginning gardeners as well as experienced gardeners who just want easy-care color.
Uptick Gold & Bronze coreopsis needs very little water and thrives in any soil. This sun-loving, drought-proof groundcover will transform any spot in your garden to a colorful oasis! Bonus: it also makes a nice cut flower, so you'll always have a supply of blooms for summery arrangements.
At only 12-14" tall and 14" wide, it makes a tidy addition to the landscape. Ideal for containers, edging, or in front of the border!
Blooming begins in early summer and continues well into the cool months of fall.
Coreopsis love full sun and take the heat & drought effortlessly. Tightly packed with lots of branching and tons of colorful flowers, you'll be amazed at the show this puts on without any pampering! Deer leave it alone, but butterflies find it irresistible.
