Coreopsis rosea 'Sweet Dreams' (Pink Tickseed)

Pink Coreopsis, Pink Tickseed, Rose Tickseed


Continuously blooming from late spring to midsummer, award-winner Coreopsis rosea 'Sweet Dreams' is a lovely sight in the garden with its airy mounds of delicate thread-like foliage, covered with a profusion of dark raspberry flowers beautifully white-tipped! As summer progresses, under high light and temperatures, the raspberry color spreads further out on the ray petals, developing a slowly changing color pattern.

  • Easy to grow, relatively pest and disease free, this eye-catching Coreopsis won the Plantarium Silver Medal in 2005.
  • Forming a dense, bushy clump reaching up to 18 in. in height (45 cm) and 24 in. across (60 cm), this plant prefers sunny locations in medium moisture, well-drained soils. Poorly-drained or heavy clay soils are to be avoided! In optimum conditions, this plant will spread from creeping rhizomes to form a ground cover.
  • Very versatile, it is a welcomed addition to borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens and does great in containers. Effective as an accent plant, groundcover (small area), path or patio edging and spectacular in mass plantings.
  • Deadheading of spent flowers will promote new blooms, although this can be tedious. Midsummer shearing (after the first flush of flowers) should help tidy up the plant and promote a fall rebloom. This cultivar is sterile and doesn't self-seed.
