Coreopsis ‘Summer Punch’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


Large bi-colored flowers of deep crimson and lemon-gold blanket this Coreopsis from the very start of summer, and then change as they age to deep ox-blood and burnished bronze before the petal drop cleanly away. A very handsome and dramatic annual; low spreading habit, tons of flowers and long easy care life.
