PERMATHREAD Red Satin Coreopsis
Highly saturated blooms on tall stems, PERMATHREAD™ Red Satin Tickseed (Coreopsis x ‘Red Satin’ PP# 25736), also known to many as Threadleaf Coreopsis, is a superior selection of the sunny, heat-loving native wildflower! The Red Satin Tickseed are long-blooming, drought tolerant and disease resistant, fearless little perennial that is also seedless!
These easy-to-grow flowers are abundant jewels for your garden design! Dark, wine-red soaked flowers have a pearlescent sheen on the petals and gleaming golden centers that attract butterflies and pollinators from far and wide! Blooming in early summer, the daisy-like petals are pleated and lightly toothed, usually a bit slimmer than other Coreopsis. Each with a shimmery sheen, they glisten in the sun!
When not in flower, they are just as beautiful! A healthy mound of bright-green foliage boasts finely cut leaves and long deep lobes. Plants emerge a bit later in the spring but profusely bloom all summer into fall. The more you cut, the more they bloom, so keep your vases full and your pollinators will be full too! Compact, rounded mounds valiantly tolerate sweltering sunny, hot dry garden beds.
These sun-loving gems fill your perennial beds and borders with long-stem blossoms, making them amazing as cut flowers for floral arrangements. Cutting borders and cottage gardens become bright beacons with the addition of these beauties. Reaching a modest 15-18 inches wide and 2-foot tall, these make fantastic additions to larger containers and add a burst of bold color to sunny planters and window boxes, porches and patios alike. The fresh color and lacy foliage are the perfect backdrops for the bold blooms to follow in late spring to early summer!
Coreopsis are truly North American natives, and as such, bloom with carefree abandon almost anywhere you plant them in the US. Tickseed is Xeric (very drought tolerant) and works great in urban water-wise designs. Wildflower gardens are, of course, perfect sites for Red Satin Tickseed! Making themselves at home in rock gardens and prairies as well.
Plant Coreopsis Red Satin en masse to fill hot dry areas with deep, wine-red flowers with an orange center. Providing gorgeous hardiness that won’t back down from tough conditions each early through late summer. The showy blooms are deer and rabbit resistant, so are a good choice for planting in large swaths along those out-of-the-way areas without the worry of them being mowed down.
Doing best in any kind of well-drained soil, Red Satin Tickseed is successful in poor, sandy and average soils. They’re really not particular as long as they don’t sit in water. Once established, Tickseed is very drought tolerant and thrives in those hottest dry sites most plants don’t tolerate. A hardy native plant, these thrive in USDA zones 5-9.
Red Satin Tickseed loves full sun and a generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
