Coreopsis UpTick™

UpTick is set to re-invent the hardy coreopsis class with large, striking flowers and excellent hardiness to USDA Zone 5. UpTick is a sunny North American native with summer-long blooming. It offers great perennial garden interest and grows in a tidy mounded habit. UpTick requires no vernalization or long days to flower. Its bigger flowers and longer blooming means more color at retail and in the garden. The series has four colors, with Gold & Bronze being the stand-out. You’re sure to see an “uptick” in sales with this innovative, showy series. >> Learn More
