Plant Features

The Limerock Passion Coreopsis Plant is a sport of Limerock Ruby and is a Tickseed developed by Mary Ann Faria of Limerock Plant Farm in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Somewhat a rarity, the brilliant magenta-pink single blossoms are a departure from normal Tickseed coloring. A tender perennial, this most delicate of the Limerock series should be treated as an annual in all but those climates with the warmest winters. Limerock Passion tolerates heat and humidity though and will reward your TLC with a showy display of flowers from early summer through mid-fall. Known to attract butterflies, the fern-like foliage and finely cut flowers dance with even the slightest bit of breeze and are wonderful for naturalizing.

Companion Planting: Aster, Echinacea, Grasses, Penstemon, Salvia

Limerock Passion

The plants came in great condition , looking very healthy. They needed to be watered for several days . The plants are now planted in their new homes and I am looking forward to the future blooms.
