Tickseed is a popular perennial that will suit both the modern city gardens as well as natural landscapes in the country. Redhift is another variety from the BIG BANG™ series bred by Darrell R.Probst from Hubbardston, Mass, USA. It is an interspecific hybrid of 5 species whose seeds were collected in the wild in 2005. The result was recruited from the sixth generation of crosses as a unique plant of uniform habit and features. Patented under PP20412 in 2008.

Redhift is a tickseed with pale yellow flowers that are decorated with rich burgundy red eye around yellow centre. Mature flowers gain dark red shades in late summer which contrasts with young yellow flowers. The stems are rather thin but strong, about 40 cm tall, and well branched offering numerous flower buds from early summer to early autumn. Redshift tickseed does not produce seeds.

It will grow in nearly any soil and as it withstands drought it is popular for rockeries, just avoid heavy and wet, compacted soils. Making it a glowing feature in your perennial garden bed is the reasonable and expected way of using it. But placing it among shrubs with different foliage and flowers will mean an honour for this easy and affordable beauty. Fully hardy to at least -29°C (USDA zone 5).
