Coreopsis 'Limerock Passion'® - thread leaf coreopsis

Thread leaf coreopsis is a wonderful, maintenance-free perennial which shines its way through any garden with rich-coloured flowers all summer long. You can have a country garden or be a town-garden enthusiast, coreopsis will still have features suitable for your plot.

Limerock Passion is a novelty from the USA, discovered as a naturally-occurring mutation of another hybrid Limerock Ruby only in 2001. It was patented 3 years later. Its daisy-like flowers are lilac pink to red-purple. Its extremely long flowering period begins in early summer and ends in the last warm days of autumn. Deadheading will enhance flowering but is not necessary, it flowers abundantly every year.

The fluffy, thread-like leaves are very decorative on their own yet before the flowers come out. And if you don’t mind me saying that they look like dill (without the scent). The desirable advantage of this variety is that it is not invasive and does not seed itself around like some of the other coreopsis. It forms a dense and compact clump.

It will grow in nearly any soil and as it withstands drought it is popular for rockeries. It seldom grows taller than 30 cm. Making it a glowing feature in your perennial garden bed is the reasonable and expected way of using it. But placing it among shrubs with different foliage and flowers will mean an honour for this easy and affordable beauty. Fully hardy to -30°C (USDA zone 5).
