Coreopsis (tickseed) is a wonderful, maintenance-free perennial for climates with very mild winders which shines its way through any garden with rich-coloured flowers all summer long. You can have a country garden or be a city-garden enthusiast, coreopsis will still have features suitable for your plot. This new variety is from a controlled breeding programme led by Harini Korlipara, i.e. breeder who also introduced Tiki Torch Echinacea.

Mango Punchcoreopsis is a fantastic annual tick seed with small, daisy-like, coppery orange flowers. Leaves are narrow, rich green, thread-like. It forms a dense mound covered with flowers from mid July until late summer.

The desirable advantage of this variety is that it is not invasive and does not seed itself around like some of the other coreopsis. Hybrid coreopsis is best grown in free-draining soil or a rockery where their roots do not sit in water or mud over winter and spring. Hardiness for Europe has not been observed as yet but is expected to be reasonably hardy only in well-drained soil in USDA zone 9. If your soil is heavy or compacted the best way to overwinter this beauty is growing it in a container that is moved inside to a cold, dark room before winter.
