Red Satin Tickseed, or Coreopsis PERMATHREAD™Red Satin, are easy-to-grow members of the sunflower family that yield velvety bunches of silky, ruby flowers with feathery petals and bright golden centers. Red Satin has delicate, vivid, green foliage held aloft by compact branched stems. With a mature height of 15 to 18 inches, these season-long bloomers are perfect for keeping your garden energized. The flowers are sterile, which means they will stay in bloom from early summer all the way to the first frost.   

Created by Master Hybridizer, Darrell Probst, Red Satin Tickseed is excellent for attracting pollinators, and, since it blooms all season, it is an excellent late-source of nectar. Coreopsis is a low-maintenance, reliable plant that will come back year after year with minimal effort. It is deer and critter resistant and has a spread of 18 to 22 inches. They are a favorite of florists, and make excellent cut-flowers and last up to two weeks without wilting.

Red Satin Tickseed Spacing

Red Satin Tickseed is drought, seaside, and humidity tolerant, but requires average watering to maximize its potential. For best performance, you can fertilize your Red Satin Coreopsis with liquid plant feed that has low levels of nitrogen. It needs slightly moist, well-drained soil to thrive. An ideal pH for your tickseed is 6.0 to 7.0, or mildly acidic. In pots or containers, use peat-free potting compost. Your tickseed will survive in partial sun, but thrives in areas with full sun.

Be sure to provide your coreopsis with support, especially if you are planting them in windy areas. Red Satin blooms should be dead-headed to encourage more flowers, especially in late summer months. Red Satin Tickseed is vulnerable to aphids, thrips, and powdery mildew. It is important to watch for signs of pests and mildew by checking your plants regularly.

Red Satin Tickseed Spacing

When planting, your Red Satin Tickseed should be spaced 12 to 18 inches apart. This coreopsis is perfectly paired with thicker foliage plants, along borders, and in landscaping beds. It is especially beautiful in containers and pots with phlox or daisies. It will naturalize quickly and benefit from division every two to three years.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
