This Coreopsis forms a compact, rounded mound covered with rich colored flowers. 1½”, Light ivory flowers have dark magenta centers which spread toward the edge of the petals. The flowers cover the bright green, threadleaf foliage for a showy midsummer display.

Heat up your summer garden with SIZZLE & SPICE® Coreopsis, a new line of Threadleaf Coreopsis from Walters Gardens, Inc. hybridizing. Members of this collection have compact, rounded habits that are covered with flowers from early to late summer. With bright colors like red, orange, and yellow, these varieties will capture your attention in the garden and on your retail shelves alike.

Coreopsis is easy to grow, making it a good choice for beginners. One plant will provide you with long-lasting cut flower bouquets all summer long.


Coreopsis is native to North America. Therefore, it is easy to grow, thriving in any well-drained soil and full sun. Once established, it is rather drought tolerant. It can be propagated either by seed or by division every few years in spring or fall.
