How to use it. Coreopsis ‘Redshift’ works well at the front edge of a garden bed. Redshift likes to splay, so it also works well in the interior of a garden bed, where it appears like a skirt on other perennials.
The added red offers a richness to summer and fall combinations. Combining Redshift with a native switchgrass that has red accents, such as Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah', pairs two relaxed styles for a bold statement.
Redshift massed as a ground cover will mimic the garden's design. If the bed has a very formal nature, Redshift will take on a formal flair. If planted as at the hem of country flowers and shrubs, it will take on a free-form naturalistic style.
A trick I've found using this plant in design: The more red I pair it with, the more the red of the coreopsis pops. And I'm all about pop!
