Coreopsis verticillata 'Broad Street'

Coreopsis verticillata 'Broad Street'
thread-leaf tickseed

Synonym(s) Coreopsis 'Cruizin' Broad Street'
Common name thread-leaf tickseed
Family asteraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-8)
Flowers red-orange (late spring-summer)
Size 12-18"
Light sun

This selection is one of the Cruizin' series of thread-leaf coreopsis. Some references put it in C. verticillata, others consider it a hybrid (no species). Also, some say it is all orange-red, others mention yellow tips. So there must be several strains going around, and I don't know if we have the "official" one - but it's a nice one, anyways.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
