Coreopsis grandiflora Solar Fancy

Get ready for the greatest showstopper in the summer garden you have ever laid eyes on. The Coreopsis grandiflora (large-flowered Tickseed) Solar-series are the most spectacular, clump-forming, perennial wildflowers. Boasting a profusion of showy, bright-colored flowers, continuously blooming from late spring all the way into autumn. The Coreopsis Solar-series have a neat, mounded habit and very healthy foliage: they keep their fresh green foliage healthier than other cultivars! As if that’s not enough, these long-flowering perennials are resistant to heat, drought and humidity. She even tolerates poor or sandy soil.  Being wildflowers, they are a great addition to any pollinator-friendly garden. Offering a true buffet for bees and butterflies. Coreopsis Solar Fancy has been selected for its high disease resistance and the astounding amount of large, brightly colored flowers. She shows off proudly with her cherry-red flowers with bright yellow margins: from June all the way to October. Shearing back lightly after flowering promotes a second flush of blooms. It is undoubtedly one of the most long-lasting, abundantly flowering, low-maintenance plants for the natural-looking perennial garden.

Hardy to Zones 4-9.
