Plant Features

Big Bang Mercury Rising Coreopsis produce lovely, deep red blooms with a yellow button center and frilly, red petals that have a powdering of white on the tips in summer. The foliage stays pleasantly green all season long. You'll love the heat resistance, along with its ability to stand out no matter where you plant it! The Big Bang series was created to provide continuous color and as such has sterile flowers, which will not reseed and does not attract pollinators like other tickseed varieties. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid this plant.
