Coreopsis ‘Limerock Ruby’

Hybrid Coreopsis

USDA Zone: 8-10

Plant number: 1.165.320

This tender selection of Coreopsis flowers freely from summer through fall. Plants form a bushy mound of ferny green foliage, bearing masses of daises that are a true ruby-red shade, with a tiny yellow eye. Prefers average to moist soil and a sunny location. Best treated as an annual in all but the mildest winter regions. Excellent for edging the border, but especially superb in tubs or mixed containers. Tolerates heat and humidity. Attractive to butterflies. Trim plants back by half in late July to promote repeat blooming. From Blooms of Bressingham®. USPP#15455, CPBR#1597: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
