Coreopsis 'Red Elf''
"Li'l Bang" series
If you love ‘Mercury Rising’ but need something smaller, try ‘Red Elf’. It has very similar deep burgundy red blossoms but on a much smaller plant that only grows about a foot wide. Its smaller bun-shaped habit helps it fit better into combination container plantings or smaller borders where it will provide a rich spot of color for months beginning in early summer.
Like ‘Mercury Rising’, its deep red petal tips become frosted with a touch of white during the hottest part of the season, returning to a solid deep red when temperatures moderate. Since the flowers are sterile, they just keep on coming all season long without the need for deadheading. A midseason shearing will keep this plant looking its best all season, though it is highly disease resistant. The only Coreopsis of its kind available—don’t miss out!.
