Description
Beautiful new Red Shift creates a bushy plant growing up to three feet, and covers itself with these stunning bi-colored blooms. This one is a scene stealer in the garden!

North American Native Wildflowers: Our beautiful wild Coreopsis species, and how they've been improved. The Coreopsis group is one of the great gifts of North America to the plant world. Almost all the species of Coreopsis that the world now knows and loves are North American native wildflowers. The following ones are particularly famous, and all these are native over most of the eastern states.

Plains Coreopsis, C. tinctoria, also called Calliopsis, is a much-loved wild annual and is a mainstay of wildflower meadow seed mixtures. (See seed in our Wildflower Encyclopedia)
Lanceleaf Coreopsis, C. lanceolata is the famous perennial golden daisy that decorates fields over almost the whole east. (See seed in our Wildlfower Encyclopedia)
The Rosy Coreopsis, C. rosea is another wild perennial which is finer-leaved than Lanceleaf, and has been hybridized into some of the best new colors and forms.
Thread Leaf Coreopsis, C. verticillata is a small delicate-appearing perennial wildflower with fine leaves and stems. This one has been made into many popular garden hybrids, most famous being Moonbeam, a huge hit when it hit the gardening market.
Tickseed Coreopsis C. grandiflora is a common southern native and has golden flowers 1 to 2 1/2 inches across.

Since these wonderful plants are North American natives, their hybrids are right at home in your perennial gardens.

                I planted 2 tiny plants last late summer; we live in the mountains of NW North Carolina at about 3900 feet. They came up this year as massive bushes and are blooming profusely. I've been dead-heading them daily to keep them blooming but I don't know if this is necessary -- if anyone can tell me, please do!!

                  The plant grew well, but it is not the colors I expected. The flower is more than 75% yellow, so it is not even close to what the picture looked like.
