UpTick™ Yellow & Red Coreopsis
Sunny Uptick™ Yellow & Red Blooms with Dark Centers
- Great in Sunny Locations
- Showy, Long-Lasting Yellow and Red Blooms
- Attracts Butterflies
If you want a flower that demands attention, you want an Uptick™ Yellow and Red Coreopsis (Coreopsis x 'Baluptowed'). In fact, you'll want several. This great perennial is a Proven Winners® selection that was developed for long-lasting blooms.
Bet you'll want more than one after you see how many flowers it produces. This small plant blooms all summer and into fall. Their dynamic contrast of yellow petals that turn to a deep red makes these flowers quite striking from a distance. And this plant produces so many blossoms, you can always spare a few for a cut arrangement.
Perfect to mass in a small space, to edge a long garden bed, or as a "Filler" in a fun Container Garden. You'll simply love these sun-bright blossoms. Snip them back after flowering for a second showing in fall. Just deadhead the wilted blooms for best chances of a second bloom.
The Uptick™ Yellow and Red Coreopsis has the reputation for being easy to plant and care for in addition to being disease resistant. This deer-resistant plant grows bright green foliage. Even though the deer avoid this lovely plant, butterflies can't resist them.
This zippy plant loves the sun! It prefers hot sunny areas of the yard for its best showing. Plant a row of these as a front border with other varieties from the same series to produce one of the more vibrant summer displays, you'll ever see.
Once established, the Uptick™ Yellow and Red Coreopsis will flourish with little maintenance and return year and year. Plant this spunky beauty in a mound style to continue to allow water to run off its roots. This will reduce the chances of mildew or root rot.
The Uptick™ Yellow and Red Coreopsis does best with well-drained soil with a medium-moisture level. This bright plant thrives in full sun where it will ravish your garden with luminous vibrancy.
This beautiful plant will shower you every summer with remarkable red and yellow hues. Plant a few Red and Yellows beside some Cream and Reds or Uptick Gold™ and Bronzes and you will have one of the most festive yards you can imagine.
