General Description

A relatively unknown selection of Coreopsis, this is a wonderful little plant for edging, the rock garden, or growing in containers. Plants form a small mound of leathery green leaves, bearing bright golden-orange single daisies in late spring and early summer. Remove faded flowers to encourage repeat blooming. Dislikes drying out. Tolerates hot, humid summers. Easily divided in either spring or fall. This is a compact form of a wildflower native to the southern USA. Attractive to butterflies.
