Coreopsis General Information:

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. Big Bang™ Series was hybridized for larger flowers, these Coreopsis will transform with cooler temperatures. They set little to no seed and put all their energy into flowering.

Coreopsis Plant Care:

Of the easiest care, likes a hot dry spot. Deadheading (removing spent blossoms) extends 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.
