Planted 3 Snowberry Coreopsis in spring of 07. Results are excellent: fantastic display of masses of flowers. It will be interesting to see how well it reblooms over the course of the summer.

Snowberry stands 26 inches high and slightly wider, and because it is sterile, it won't self-sow, but concentrates instead on sending up ever more buds and blooms! Deadhead the flowers promptly for even faster rebloom. Zones 6-9.
