Coreopsis ‘Gunfire’

Coreopsis ‘Gunfire’ is a vibrant perennial known for its dazzling red blooms and hardy nature. This eye-catching plant reaches a height of 60-75 cm (24-30 inches), making it an excellent choice for borders, cottage gardens, and wildflower meadows. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, making it perfect for bright, sunny spots.

Flowering from early summer to late autumn, Coreopsis ‘Gunfire’ produces an abundance of striking, daisy-like red flowers with yellow centers. This prolonged flowering period ensures a constant splash of color, enlivening your garden throughout the growing season.

Pruning is straightforward: deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming and maintain a tidy appearance. In late autumn, cut back the plant to ground level to prepare it for winter. Feeding is minimal; a light application of a balanced fertiliser in early spring will support healthy growth and prolific flowering.

Coreopsis ‘Gunfire’ is excellent for bees and other pollinators. Its open, nectar-rich flowers are a valuable food source, attracting a variety of beneficial insects.
