Coreopsis ‘Ruby Frost’

Hybrid Coreopsis

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.165.730

A very long-blooming perennial for sunny areas, forming a bushy mound of blue-green leaves. This is a colour breakthrough with small, deep ruby-red flowers edged in frosty white that appear in succession from summer to late fall. Shear plants lightly in late July to encourage more buds. Terrific in containers. Plants may require some support if grown in very rich garden soil, or simply shear by half in July if they begin to flop open. Possibly hardy in Zone 5 or colder, with reliable winter snowcover. Part of the Hardy Jewel™ Series from Terra Nova Nurseries, Oregon. USPP#21758: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
