Walter Blom Plants Coreopsis L'il Bang Red Elf

Coreopsis Little Bang Red Elf

If you love ‘Mercury Rising’ but need something smaller, try ‘Red Elf’. It has very similar deep burgundy red blossoms but on a much smaller plant that only grows about a foot wide. Its smaller bun-shaped habit helps it fit better into combination container plantings or smaller borders where it will provide a rich spot of colour for months beginning in early summer. Like ‘Mercury Rising’, its deep red petal tips become frosted with a touch of white during the hottest part of the season, returning to a solid deep red when temperatures moderate. Since the flowers are sterile, they just keep on coming all season long without the need for deadheading. A midseason shearing will keep this plant looking its best all season, though it is highly disease resistant. The only Coreopsis of its kind available—don’t miss out!

Description

Coreopsis (Tickseed)

Family : Asteraceae

Few perennials produce more flower than a Coreopsis. Their long flowering period with an attractive range of colours make them deservedly popular. The Limerock series should be treated as a 1 year container or bedding plant as they are not reliably winter hardy but few plants can match their flower power.
