Clean white 2” blossoms are enhanced by a wine-burgundy, star-shaped eye. In cooler temps, the eye expands to cover more of the petal surface for a colorful mix of rosy pink and white flowers. Long blooming and perfect for the front of the border.

Daisy-like blossoms of Coreopsis Starlight from the Li’l Bang Series will open a little earlier than the Big Bang™ varieties and at ½ the height. The naturally compact habit is carefree and disease resistant. From master hybridizer, Darrell Probst.

Coreopsis General Information

Coreopsis verticillata are great cut flowers with its unusual narrow tapered foliage. Free flowering-continuously in bloom from early summer into fall. Spreads readily and can be used on a sunny bank, in a naturalized planting, or in a traditional border. 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.
