Hot Paprika Coreopsis


Heat up your summer garden with SIZZLE & SPICE® Coreopsis, a new line of Threadleaf Coreopsis from Walters Gardens. This beautiful red Coreopsis forms a compact, rounded, uniform mound. 1½”, rich, deep red flowers cover the bright green, thread leaf foliage for a showy midsummer display.  Members of this collection have compact, rounded habits that are covered with flowers from early to late summer.  At maturity, Hot Paprika reaches about 15-18" tall and 26" wide. Remember to plant your Coreopsis plants in full sun since they have a tendency to get powdery mildew on their foliage if planted in shade.

Coreopsis prefers full sun with moist, well-drained soil but can sprawl if grown in too fertile soil. It can be an aggressive self-seeder and will form colonies and should be planted in areas where this would not be a problem. Deadheading of spent flowers will help control self-seeding and encourage additional blooms.

Lanceleaf Coreopsis tends to get only about 18" tall and 26" wide at maturity. This deciduous perennial blooms early in the summer and blooms through out the summer.

Coreopsis is deer resistant and non-toxic to pets.
