A beautiful combination of colours in this cosmos look-a-like coreopsis.
Named ‘Red Shift’ because the flowers change colour as the weather warms and cools through the summer, from a bright zingy yellow to pale cream, around a ruby red centre. It flowers prolifically for months in the border and makes an excellent and pretty cut flower.
Clip the spent blooms so the flowers will keep on coming. After the first flush of flowers in mid-summer give the entire bush a shearing to tidy up the plant and encourage a re-bloom.
