Coreoposis Limerock Passion

Tickseed

Unusual purple flowered variety

This variety forms a lush mound of feathery green leaves covered in a profusion of lavender-pink daisies all summer.

Where?

Best in a sunny spot. Perfect for edging a bed, border and brilliant in a container.

How?

Easy to grow in a well-drained soil. Add some coarse grit to the planting hole if your soil is heavy and likely to stay cold and wet. Remove the faded blooms to extend flowering.

This free flowering plant is a Blooms of Bressingham selection from Limerock Plant Farm in the USA.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
