(Coreopsis spp.) Coreopsis is a native wildflower with perennial and annual varieties. It is rich in nectar and attractive to pollinators. The sunny, summer blooming, daisy-like flowers of coreopsis provide long-lasting colors throughout the season. Perfect for garden borders, beautiful coreopsis also flourishes when grown in containers. The drought-tolerant plants thrive in full sun. Direct sow seeds in spring and lightly cover, as light aids germination. Seeds germinate in 7-21 days. Keep soil moist until plants are established. Provide full sun. Space plants 12-18 inches apart. Deadhead spent blooms regularly to prevent self seeding and to prolong flowering.
A dainty and delightful dwarf variety with gorgeous array of sunset colors. Compact and tidy plants reach about 16 inches tall and about as wide. A cottage garden accent or border plant, it also performs well in pots, raised beds and meadows. Versatile and irresistible to pollinators, and provides loads of color that will make your garden really glow this summer!
This dizzying explosion of bold little blooms will completely transform your design or landscape -- it is a show stopper! The small but mighty flowers are just 1 inch across, but the maroon petals dipped in lemon cream make them pop, floating atop long, wiry stems. This half hardy annual creates clouds of color that gently sway in the breeze; plants reach 3 feet tall. This plant is constantly humming with beneficial insects, from small native bees to bumbles and butterflies. It starts flowering in late spring, and when deadheaded will remain flawless and floriferous until fall! Self sows.
