If you are looking for show-stopping perennials, you can’t go wrong with the Solar Series of Giant Tickseed and this fabulous collection includes all four brilliantly-coloured varieties.

These highly improved coreopsis feature bigger, more abundant flowers and healthy foliage on plants which have been selected for their high disease-resistance. Should we have another summer of heat and drought, these Coreopsis will cope admirably. Unfussy about soil, the Solar series tolerates poor, sandy sites in full sun. Flowering commences in June and with a light shear after the first flush, will continue through to October. Plants are compact and bushy, but still retain the natural, informal looks of their wild parentage, as well as their ability to attract loads of pollinators.

Height: 50cm (20in). Spread: 45cm (18in)

Coreopsis 'Solar Collection' comprises the following varieties: 

  • Coreopsis 'Solar Moon' - pale yellow flowers with central maroon blotches
  • Coreopsis 'Solar Jewel' - bright red flowers with yellow-orange margins
  • Coreopsis 'Solar Fancy' - cherry-red flowers dusted with yellow margins
  • Coreopsis 'Solar Mellow' – golden yellow flowers with red central markings

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Height Up to 50cm (20in)
Spread Up to 45cm (18in)

Grow coreopsis in fertile, well drained soil in sunny or semi shaded position.
Water coreopsis regularly until they are fully established. After the first flush of flowers, shear over lightly to encourage more blooms to be produced throughout the summer.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
