Autumn Blush tickseed

‘autumn blush’ tickseed coreopsis hybrid

‘Autumn Blush’ lives up to the tickseed family’s tough reputation — with a twist. The soft yellow flowers with a maroon center develop a pink blush as temperatures turn cooler in fall. ‘Autumn Blush’ may be a bit slow to take off in spring, but it will get going in warmer weather and is soon covered in blooms from early summer through fall. The ferny foliage makes a great contrast to large-leafed plants like bergenia.

TYPE Perennial SIZE 24 in. tall by 32 in. wide BLOOM Summer to fall LIGHT Full sun SOIL Average to well-drained PESTS None serious HARDINESS Cold: USDA zones 6 to 9 Heat: AHS zones 9 to 1
