Plant Features

Ruby Frost Coreopsis Plants offer a startling color breakthrough with the brilliant red corolla and its thin edge of creamy white frosting on the tips and sides of each petal. Each petal will be somewhat different from the one bordering it; some being more thoroughly "frosted" than others. Tickseeds are easy to grow perennials that tolerate a range of soils, even dry soil in hot sundrenched areas. Once established they are drought tolerant. Butterflies enjoy the nectar while wild birds will eat the seed heads when they are done flowering. Deer and rabbits tend to avoid this plant.

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

Check the zone

Plant came in timely fashion. Didn't check the zone and found it is zone 6. I live in 5. May not make it through the winter. Plant in excellent condition.

Tickseed ticked in transport!

Most leaves were brown but in a few days looks like new growth is emerging. Roots were healthy. Hopefully it will survive and put up a show in the red and white 🌺 bed.
GrowJoy: Let us know if they don't pop out of it.

This was a replacement. I was allowed to choose my replacement plant since the other had sold out for a plant that did not do so well upon planting. As always it was well packaged, and shipped quickly. Thank you GrowJoy for your great customer service.
