After Coreopsis Roulette won the Fleuroselect in 2009, gardeners around the world fell in love with its merry gold-and-mahogany stripes, its ease of growth, and its free-flowering summer-long habit. So it was only a matter of time until an even better Roulette came along . . . and here it is! Roulette Mix has all the beautiful single-flowered Roulette blooms we love, plus fully double and semi-double types. And instead of just stripes, the mix also includes solids with contrasting eyes, washes, and other bold combinations!
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. You just can’t beat it for long-range, super-easy flowering in the sunny garden. And it comes by its great performance naturally: Roulette Mix is a selection of the native species tinctoria, known as 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. This annual will keep the pollinators busy and the garden beautiful!
Roulette Mix grows readily 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 Mix just keeps turning out its blooms, each one distinctly different and all of them breathtaking!
Superb for cutflowers and a treat in the garden, Roulette Mix’s balloon-shaped deep purple buds contrast nicely with the two-tone blooms. You will love these utterly distinctive color patterns, unlike anything else in the garden and certainly unique for a Coreopsis! There has never been such a glorious mixture.
Easy, dependable, and tirelessly productive, this annual is the variety you’ve just got to try this season! Please put it at the top of your “gotta get” list! Packet is 50 seeds.
