The Uptick Red Tickseed produces bold flowers that bloom in summer and fall. Also known as Coreopsis ‘Baluptred’, the first flush of flowers are almost entirely deep dark burgundy. This plant continues to push out blooms, and flowers that bloom later in the growing season have the same dark reddish color but also boast golden yellow tips that almost look like they were hand painted. The scalloped-edged petals surround a bright yellow center. The flowers are offset by narrow, medium-green foliage.
This plant has a mounded, upright growth habit and is a good choice for beds, borders, and containers. Plant it near the middle or front of a mixed bed so the lovely flowers can be easily seen and enjoyed, and trim the flowers to display in arrangements. Pollinators like bees and butterflies also enjoy the striking flowers. Deer generally leave the Uptick Red Tickseed alone for added convenience. Grow this North American native as a perennial in zones 4 through 9.
Uptick Red Tickseed Care
The Uptick Red Tickseed needs full sun, so choose a spot that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight each day. Plant in acidic-to-neutral soil that has medium moisture and is well drained. Tickseed is a hardy plant that can live in poor-quality soil but will thrive in rich soil. Apply a layer of organic mulch in the spring or feed the plant using a balanced fertilizer annually. Routinely water new plants during the first growing season. Established plants are drought tolerant and only need water during an extended dry spell.
Tickseed plants are low maintenance, and once established, they only need a little attention. Divide the Uptick Red Tickseed in the spring when it starts to outgrow its space.
Uptick Red Tickseed Spacing
The Uptick Red Tickseed will grow 12 to 14 inches tall and wide. Space plants 8 to 10 inches apart when creating a mass planting.
