Quick Overview:

Fiery flowers glow red and gold, like tiger eyes on this gorgeous garden beauty. Extra hardy Coreopsis verticillata breeding makes this a star performer. ‘Bengal Tiger’s clean, manicured habit and feathery, mildew resistant foliage brings our breeding program up a notch against the competition. A constant performer for garden and containers. Compared to C. ‘Route 66’, ‘Bengal Tiger’ is much shorter with flowers that are yellow with clear red eyes rather than creamy yellow with a rose red that bleeds into the creamy yellow. Both are Coreopsis verticillata hybrids.

Easily grown in dry to medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Thrives in poor, sandy or rocky soils with good drainage. Tolerant of heat, humidity and drought. Prompt deadheading of spent flower stalks can be tedious for a large planting, but does tend to encourage additional bloom. Plants may be sheared in mid to late summer to promote a fall rebloom and to remove any sprawling or unkempt foliage.
