Redshift Tickseed

At the farmer's market I couldn't resist getting a tickseed from a local nursery grower. I was familiar with the usual yellow blossoms of tickseed but this new variety, redshift tickseed, caught my eye. Tickseed loves sun, has fern like leaves, grows about two feet tall and is hardy to -20 F. The multi-colored blooms are a delight to the eye. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

    1. Captain Google says I do know it - as coreopsis.

    2. Hi Sue, thanks, I think it is threadleaf coreopsis, but the variegated flowers are a winner in the garden I hope.

  2. Those flowers really look beautiful. I have never seen them here in Hawaii.
