Blooms of Bressingham Introduces New CoreopsisSource: Aris Horticultural Services

Coreopsis ‘Sweet Marmalade’ is a new garden addition from Blooms of Bressingham.

With a famous parent in its background and a name that captures its unfolding orange-red to apricot-yellow color, coreopsis ‘Sweet Marmalade’ is a new garden addition from Blooms of Bressingham.

This coreopsis’ orange-red flowers soften as they mature, mellowing to a more pale apricot-yellow through the season. It’s also covered in bushy mounds of mid-green, narrow, linear foliage. ‘Sweet Marmalade’ blooms summer into early autumn, and its tidy habit works beautifully in the garden or in a container. Hardy in Zones 5-9, like most of its genus, it’s happiest in full sun and in porous, well-drained soil. Bushy mounded plants grow 10-inches high and 20-inches wide the first year.

Discovered by Blooms partner Yohei Hosogai of Nichien Company, Japan, ‘Sweet Marmalade’ is a sport of another very popular Blooms variety, ‘Creme Brulee’. ‘Sweet Marmalade’ doesn’t require vernalization for flowering. Unvernalized liners planted in April will produce finished flowering plants in 12 to 14 weeks.
