Tequila Sunrise Variegated Tickseed

Variegated Hybrid Tickseed
Coreopsis 'Tequila Sunrise'

For the second time this month a Hybrid Coreopsis is featured here. ‘Tequila Sunrise’ is a hybrid of Lanceleaf Coreopsis (C. lanceolata) and Bigflower Coreopsis (C. grandiflora). The first thing that you would notice about this plant is it’s variegated foliage. The clear, deep yellow flowers with their hint of red kind of complete the package. Also of note is this plants relative compact habit. It is easy to keep looking neat.

The trio I play with once a month is on for tonight. It will be fun to be out performing although my brother Jim can pull some tricks on me at these gigs. He will turn around and say “remember this song?” and just start playing it right off. In a way it is better since I don’t have time to think about it too much. Play or die :lol: Mystery Girl will probably be there (she has been every other time) and I may try to clandestinely take her picture. I am torn about what gear to bring and have decided to go as small as possible. Of course this is one piece that will always go with me. This guitar has completely charmed me.
