Coreopsis ‘Ruby Frost’

1 Photo


Coreopsis ‘Ruby Frost’ has stunning red flowers edged in a narrow white border. The floral display is impressive and eye-catching. Unfortunately, ‘Ruby Frost’ twice failed to overwinter in our trial. Even though this cultivar did not prove reliabaly perennial, its incredible floral display makes it a worthy candidate as an annual.
