Culture: Easily grown in dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerant of heat, humidity and some drought. Plants may be sheared in mid to late summer (August) to promote a fall rebloom and to remove any sprawling or unkempt foliage. Plants will spread by rhizomes, but reseeding will not occur.
Characteristics: ‘Sienna Sunset’ is a threadleaf-type coreopsis (tickseed) that typically grows in a clump to 16-20″ tall spreading to 20-24″ wide. It is a sport of Coreopsis ‘Creme Brulee’. Daisy-like flowers bloom from late spring to mid-summer with sporadic additional into fall. Rays emerge burnt sienna but gradually age to a lighter shade of orange. Rays are toothed at the tip and surround a dark yellow center disk. Deep green leaves. Plants in the genus Coreopsis are sometimes commonly called tickseed in reference to the resemblance of the seeds to ticks. Zones 5 to 9.
