Quick Overview:

?Redshift? is a clump-forming hybrid coreopsis that grows on sturdy stems to 30-36" tall. It is noted for its profuse bloom of 2" diameter flowers from late spring to mid-summer, with continued bloom to early fall (sometimes to frost). No two flowers are identical. Temperature affects flower color. In the heat of the summer, flowers generally feature creamy yellow rays with a red ring surrounding a dark golden yellow center. As temperatures begin to moderate, flower color shifts to more reds (hence the cultivar name of ‘Redshift’) with the yellow rays often showing red streaking. In the cooler temperatures of fall, flowers feature mostly dark red rays. ‘Redshift’ is the second coreopsis to be released in the new Big Bang Series (the first was Coreopsis ‘Full Moon’). Elliptic green leaves (to 3" long). Plants in the genus Coreopsis are sometimes commonly called tickseed in reference to the resemblance of the seeds to ticks.

Easily grown in medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerant of heat, humidity and some drought. Plants may be sheared in late summer, if needed, to promote a fall rebloom and to remove any unkempt foliage. Plants have excellent winter hardiness to USDA Zone 4.
