Coreopsis, Tiger Mix (Organic)

Coreopsis tinctoria.

Most plants grow to 30″ and produce daisy-like flowers with red centers and vibrant yellow edges. There is some slight variation in bloom types, including all red and more pinnate petals. Very attractive filler in flower bouquets. Pollinators and other beneficial insects also love them. Blossoms can be used to make a yellow or red dye, and a tea of the dried plant has been used to make a coffee substitute. Blooms earlier than many other flowering annuals. Deadhead to prolong blooming. Tiger Mix coreopsis is a selection of Tall Plains coreopsis, a North American native plant. Aka, Calliopsis, Tickseed.
