Coreopsis

 

Here’s an idea you cannot afford to pass up –

Take Coreopsis ‘Riding Hood’, and ‘Candy Stripes’, outstanding in terms of impact, flowering performance, branching, container habit and easy of growing. These varieties are sterile and flower until the first hard frost.

Transplant 72 cell liners in early July into 1 gallon containers for retail ready pots in 6-8 weeks.

Now you are set to crack open the traditional mum market in late summer with these winter hardy Coreopsis introductions from Darrell Probst:

 

Coreopsis
   2952 Candy Stripes (+0.25) 72’s 0.98
     360 Daybreak (+0.25) 72’s 0.98
     504 Fire Wheel (+0.25) 72’s 0.98
       72 Razzle Dazzle (+0.25) 72’s 0.98
   9216 Riding Hood (+0.25) 72’s 0.98
     144 Starstruck (+0.25) 72’s 0.98

 

‘Riding Hood’

‘Candy Stripes’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also like to recommend a new Lavender we have available for summer and fall potting:

Lavender ‘Sensational!’.

It’s is a silver leaved selection out of ‘Phenomenal’, with significantly larger blooms, broader/thicker leaves and a more compact habit.

Would you like to reserve some?

This is what we still have available:

Lavandula
   5904 Sensational! (+0.20) 72’s 7/27   0.88 
14,400 Sensational! (+0.20) 72’s 8/24 0.88
16,128 Sensational! (+0.20) 72’s 9/14 0.88
