A new hardy Coreopsis series debuts this year from Darwin Perennials. UpTick blooms from May through September with fantastic color and easy maintenance. While many tickseed varieties can grow in a range of habits with small-size flowers, UpTick grows in a tidy, mounded habit with impressively large blooms. It also features mildew resistance.
The series shows well at retail in four eye-catching colors: Cream, Cream & Red, Gold & Bronze, and Yellow & Red. It will be supplied as unrooted cuttings and as rooted cuttings available from selected Root & Sell locations. Here are some helpful guidelines for producing top-quality UpTick Coreopsis.
