Coreopsis Li'l Bang 'Red Elf'

Coreopsis Li'l Bang 'Red Elf'


This dwarf, compact Coreopsis may be short but its blooms are large and spectacular. It's hard to believe but this delightful dwarf hybrid took 10 years of intensive breeding involving 8 different species of Coreopsis.

'Red Elf' is super easy to grow and if you're a beginner gardener then this is the plant for you! It's not picky about soil type but it does appreciate a sunny spot with good drainage. It's highly disease resistance and deer generally leave it alone. The extra large, red blooms develop white tips in the summer heat and will bloom all the way into fall. Coreopsis has relatively low water needs, and once established it becomes drought tolerant. Use it to fill in along the fronts of borders and don't forget to cut some blooms for your flower bouquets - the more you cut, the more 'Red Elf' reblooms. Big Bang, we say!
