Coreopsis General Information:

Coreopsis rosea form masses of upward facing flowers over needle-like, thread-leafed soft textured foliage. Long blooming and easy to grow, they come in various heights and many shades of yellow, reds, pink, and white.

Coreopsis Plant Care:

Prefers a nice sunny well drained spot. Very easy to grow. Remove top one-third of plant with hedge shears after flowering to freshen foliage, if needed. Spreads reliably, so division every 2-3 years may be needed to restrain girth, but only if desired. Dislikes clay soil.
