Coreopsis ‘Tequila Sunrise’

Variegated Coreopsis

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.165.130

Also known as Tickseed, these are popular plants for long-blooming display in the summer border. This colourful American selection has golden-yellow daisy flowers, over a mound of foliage strongly variegated with green and creamy white. Terrific in containers and pots, or directly in the garden. Remove faded flowers regularly, to encourage blooming well into the autumn. Be sure to take out any all-green shoots that might form. Foliage takes on an attractive pink tinge during cooler weather. Attractive to butterflies. USPP#9875: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
