Cheerful fringed yellow petals surround a deep burgundy central ring. Compact foliage is a pleasing base to the bright yellow flowers held atop slender, erect stems. Coreopsis make sweet bouquets for children (of all ages!) to gather.
Coreopsis are superb in the border. Reliable, long blooming daisy-like flowers are produced from early summer into fall. Just give them some sun and enjoy the show. Coreopsis naturalize with ease and will attract lots of butterflies and birds to your garden. Bright and cheery, they make great cut flowers.
Of the easiest care, even okay in a hot dry spot. Deadheading (removing spent blossoms) can extend blooming, so pick a few for cut flowers while you are in the garden. Leave new fall growth at the base for overwintering. Benefits from division every 2-3 years in spring, if desired.
