Coreopsis 'Garnet' PBR (Hardy Jewel Series)
Tickseed - 2.5 litres
Coreopsis 'Garnet' PBR (Hardy Jewel Series) is a gorgeous new variety from America forming a mound of slender foliage covered from June through September with stunning carmine-pink daisy flowers with darker centres, excellent as cut flowers and loved by bees and butterflies. Superb at the front of a border with yellow Coreopsis and blue or purple Salvias.
Height and spread 30cm by 50cm (12in x 20in). Thrives in moist but well-drained, humus-rich soil, in sun.
Deadhead regularly and shear back to just above the basal foliage in late July to encourage further flowering into September. Shear back again in late September to promote sturdy basal growth before winter.
Bee and butterfly friendly.
