Compact and Earlier Blooming
Flowers open a soft yellow and mature to white 2” blossoms 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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
