2009 Fleuroselect Novelty Award Winner!
Dazzling gold stripes on mahogany-brown petals mark each bloom as unique on this very free-flowering, semi-double Coreopsis. Irresistible to butterflies but left alone by deer and untroubled by heat, humidity, and drought, this carefree beauty self-sows freely, going from seed to bloom in just 12 weeks.
An annual Coreopsis, Roulette is a selection of the native species tinctoria, the Plains Calliopsis. Just 18 to 24 inches high in full bloom, it spreads 12 to 18 inches wide in garden or container, a good all-purpose size that fills in bare spots and makes a fantastic mass planting.
Roulette is simply eager to grow in just about any sunny, well-drained soil. Whatever the weather does, this plant will cope, continuing to bloom through periods of great heat, rain, and dry weather. You will really appreciate its staying power when you see other plants in the garden struggle while Roulette just keeps turning out its beautiful pinwheel blooms!
Superb for cutflowers and a treat in the garden, Roulette’s balloon-shaped deep purple buds contrast nicely with the two-tone blooms. You will love this utterly distinctive color pattern, unlike anything else in the garden and certainly unique for a Coreopsis!
Easy, dependable, and tirelessly productive, this annual is the variety you’ve just got to try this season! You won’t be disappointed (and we think you’ll be back for more next year!) Packet is 50 seeds.
