Coreopsis, Dwarf Red (Organic)

Coreopsis tinctoria.

Annual coreopsis with dark red blooms. These small plants grow to about 1′ in all directions. They fit perfectly in tight spaces where a splash of color is desired, and look great in a pot on the porch. We like that the plants care for themselves with little help, and are very attractive to pollinators. Unlike the wild Tall Plains coreopsis, Dwarf Red is a quick bloomer and eager to get the flower party started. A North American native wildflower also used as a dye plant. Heat loving and drought resistant. Aka, Calliopsis, Tickseed.

Direct sow 1/4” deep after danger of frost, or sow indoors for transplant 6 weeks before last frost. Thin/ transplant to 12”. Plants prefer full sun. Deadhead to prolong bloom and limit self-seeding.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from seed heads that are fully dry. Shell by hand or by dancing, winnow or screen to clean. Some cross-pollination may occur, isolate from varieties of the same species by 1/4 mile.

    Shorty Coreopsis

    Where did you grow this variety? California

    The description says they grow only 12 inches tall, which is accurate. The ones in the photo are in 4 inch wide pots. They produce a ton of color but stay very short, so plan accordingly.
