While talking with the folks at North Creek Nursery this past week, I looked down to see a beautiful coreopsis with the most unusual coloring. I interrupted our conversation to ask about it.
When I got home, I called the nice folks at North Creek and ask if they would send me a high quality digital image of this plant so you can see each stage of the flower color change. ( Do not use this photo. Contact North Creek if you want one.)
In Spring or early summer, the flower is yellow with the red center. As the season changes to cooler temps, the flower turns red. Really remarkable when all the colors are present. It’s an eye catcher for certain.
Coreopsis ‘Redshift’ Big BangTM PPAF can not be purchased directly from this grower so you need to tell your favorite nursery to carry them.
Darrell Probst is the breeder.
Height and spread about 30″
