SIZZLE & SPICE® Series
Common Name: Threadleaf Coreopsis
Heat up your summer garden with SIZZLE & SPICE® Coreopsis, a new line of Threadleaf Coreopsis from Walters Gardens, Inc. hybridizing. Members of this collection have compact, rounded habits that are covered with flowers from early to late summer. With bright colors like red, orange, yellow and dark magenta, these varieties will capture your attention in the garden and on your retail shelves alike.
This brazen perennial demands attention during the summer with its cheery and bright yellow color. 1-1½" wide, lemon yellow flowers have deep maroon, nearly black centers. The flowers will cover the gray-green, threadleaf foliage for a showy midsummer display. This is a bright, sunny yellow versus the golden yellow color 'Curry Up'.
Coreopsis is easy to grow, making it a good choice for beginners. One plant will provide you with long-lasting cut flower bouquets all summer long. Coreopsis is native to North America. Therefore, it is easy to grow, thriving in any well-drained soil and full sun. Once established, it is rather drought tolerant.
