15-18" tall x 20-26" wide. With a beautiful rounded form, Sizzle & Spice™Crazy Cayenne Coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata) adds mounds of color to the summer garden. The low profile of this Coreopsis (commonly known as Tickseed) is perfect for edging sunny borders or tucking into mixed containers. Plant alongside broadleaf perennials for textural contrast or naturalize in drifts among meadow plantings. Also excellent for slopes. The fine, gray-green foliage pairs well with Echinacea or spikes of Veronica. Sizzle and Spice™Series Coreopsis have true winter hardiness, a compact habit, and long-lasting color. This versatile perennial tolerates hot, dry sites as well as high humidity. Coreopsis are native to North America and quite adaptable. Performs well in poor, dry soils. Divide every two to three years as desired. Plants are drought tolerant once established. Deer resistant and salt tolerant.
