The Uptick Red Tickseed produces bold flowers that bloom in summer and fall. Also known as Coreopsis ‘Baluptred’, the first flush of flowers are almost entirely deep dark burgundy. This plant continues to push out blooms, and flowers that bloom later in the growing season have the same dark reddish color but also boast golden yellow tips that almost look like they were hand painted. The scalloped-edged petals surround a bright yellow center. The flowers are offset by narrow, medium-green foliage.
This plant has a mounded, upright growth habit and is a good choice for beds, borders, and containers. Plant it near the middle or front of a mixed bed so the lovely flowers can be easily seen and enjoyed, and trim the flowers to display in arrangements. Pollinators like bees and butterflies also enjoy the striking flowers. Deer generally leave the Uptick Red Tickseed alone for added convenience. Needs full sun and reaches a height of 14 in with a spread of 14 in.
