Plant Code: COGS

Lofty and robust, the towering blue-green foliage will reach its full mass in summer. Bright lemon-yellow flowers in late summer also bloom on shorter, secondary growth dispersing color throughout the entire plant. An impressive finale to the late summer garden! Beneficial pollinators still foraging for nectar will be most grateful for this refueling station.

Coreopsis Gold Standard was a front-runner in trials at the botanical gardens of Mt. Cuba Center in Delaware in 2015. The unusual upright foliage holds flowers on strong stems. Extremely cold hardy and easy-to-grow.
